Air New Zealand and Virgin Blue seek to form trans-Tasman alliance

On 3 May 2010 Air New Zealand and the Virgin Blue group announced that they are seeking regulatory approval from the New Zealand Ministry of Transport and the Australian Competition & Consumer Authority (ACCC) to establish an alliance covering their trans-Tasman routes. The application to the ACCC is available here.

Papers from the last major application of this type, the proposed international alliance between Air New Zealand and Qantas in 2006 are still available here on the Ministry of Transport's web site.
