Air New Zealand to begin flying the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner

Accessing the Cook Islands untouched crystal clear turquoise lagoons just got a lot more comfortable, with Air New Zealand upgrading its aircraft to operate a 787-9 Dreamliner on the direct Sydney –Rarotonga service, commencing this week.

The aircraft will offer its award winning interior products including lie flat Business Premier beds and comfortable Premium Economy seats.

The service also introduces Air New Zealand’s unique Economy Skycouch™ to the Sydney – Rarotonga route for the first time, allowing customers to book a row of three economy seats with customised footrests that raise to a horizontal position, creating a flat flexible space to stretch out and relax.

The Sydney-Rarotonga service operates once per week and is six hours in duration, arriving Rarotonga early in the morning allowing for a full day of holiday enjoyment.

The Cook Islands’ lagoons are home to a variety of marine life, protected and accessible to explore by glass bottom boat, snorkeling or diving.
