UPDATE: New All-of-Government air travel panel
New Zealand Government Procurement (NZGP) has launched the new All-of-Government Air Travel Services panel.
Supply agreements have been confirmed with the following panel suppliers for the second generation All-of-Government Air Travel Services Contract, which commences on 1 March 2017:
- 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 are still in discussions with other air travel suppliers, including Air New Zealand, with a view to including them on the panel.
The new contract comes into effect on 1 March 2017 and NZGP will be working with participating agencies to help them transition to the new contract.
The contract is designed to complement other AoG travel contracts (Travel Management Services (TMS) and Rental Vehicles), and be flexible enough to enable agencies to achieve best value.
More information for government agencies on the new contract is available on inSource.
