Getting to know Air New Zealand

It all began 70+ years ago in April 1940 when Tasman Empire Airways Limited or TEAL for short began a flying boat service which rapidly progressed into an international network. Fast forward 25 years and TEAL gets a facelift and a name change, dubbed Air New Zealand and trading in boat planes for aircrafts and just like that a national carrier was born.

A merger with NAC and the New Zealand Governments priviateation of the airline by a consortium headed up by Qantas, Japan Airlines and American Airlines has taken the carrier to new heights.
