When Japan East meets New Zealand West you get a perfect blend of cultures and hospitality! Our Japanese team are hugely customer focused and love delivering on the promise of uniquely Kiwi experiences. They take great pride in wearing the Koru and love to sell our destination to the Japanese market. This region has a special place in the Air New Zealand family, although small we share such great ties with our Japan friends supporting each other for over 30 years, it's a market we are hugely proud of.
With offices based in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan is home to approx 35 staff, most are local employees with our current General Manager being from New Zealand and our Commercial Manager from the UK. The Japan team is heavily focused on Sales & Market Development and does a great job at representing New Zealand as a destination and driving travellers on Air New Zealand as the preferred Airline of choice.
