February 2011: Air New Zealand (ANZ) will run a special 747 flight from Auckland to Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand, which was devastated by an earthquake. (ANZ) is charging just NZ$50/$35 a seat and said that fare also applies to any service to and from Christchurch from any point in New Zealand to enable support staff and relatives to get in and people to be evacuated.
All airline services to Christchurch were suspended after the magnitude 6.3 earthquake hit at 12:51 pm local time. The event took out New Zealand’s Air Traffic Control (ATC) radar, which forced a 2-hour halt on all departures to and from the country.
Christchurch-based, (ANZ) (CEO), Rob Fyfe advised New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key and Christchurch Mayor, Bob Parker that the airline’s full resources are available to assist in the tragedy, for which the death toll stands at 75 as of press time, according to the Associated Press (AP).
