Air New Zealand added to All-of-Government Air Travel Services contract
New Zealand Government Procurement (NZGP) is pleased to announce that negotiations have been successfully concluded with Air New Zealand, and subject to the final execution of the Agreement, Air New Zealand will be joining the new All-of-Government (AoG) Air Travel Services panel.
The second generation AoG Air Travel Services Contract, which commences on 1 March 2017, will include the following suppliers:
- Air New Zealand
- Lufthansa (also includes Austrian Airlines and Swiss International Airlines)
- Qantas (Qantas for International and Jetstar for domestic)
- Singapore Airlines
- Sounds Air
- United Airlines
- Virgin Australia
We continue to negotiate with one further supplier.
Suppliers on the new panel collectively provide government with a suitable range of services for international and domestic travel while increasing connectivity to New Zealand’s regions.
The contract complements other AoG travel contracts (Travel Management Services (TMS) and Rental Vehicles), and provides flexibility, choice, and value for money for government.
NZGP is working with government agencies participating in the current contract in transitioning them to the new contract before 1 March so that they can continue to access to AoG rates and benefits for their travel needs.
