Air New Zealand receives first delivery of SAF
Air New Zealand has an average operating fleet age of 7.9 years (seat weighted average of the operating fleet as at 30 June 2023), making it a young and fuel-efficient fleet. Fleet modernisation continues with two Airbus A321neo aircraft being welcomed to the domestic fleet by 2024, two Airbus A321neo aircraft being welcomed to the international fleet by 2025, and a further two Airbus A321neo aircraft being delivered to the domestic fleet by 2027. More fuel-efficient Boeing 787 Dreamliners powered by new GE GEnx engines are on order and will replace the Boeing 777-300ER fleet as they are phased out of operation towards the end of the decade.
