The Ministry is accepting submissions on an authorisation application received from Air New Zealand and United Airlines.

Air New Zealand and United Airlines have submitted an application for authorisation of a Side Agreement to the Alliance Expansion Agreement previously entered into between the applicants and authorised by the Ministry of Transport in 2002.

If authorised, the Side Agreement would remove Carve-outs in the 2002 authorisation that prevent price co-ordination between the applicants on certain New Zealand to Los Angeles point-of-sale fares.

If you would like to submit your views on the proposed amendment, please provide them by email to by 5.00 pm on Friday 5 August 2016.
