Greece and New Zealand sign bilateral air link deal

New Zealand expects a tourist boom thanks to its air service deals with other countries

New Zealand has signed an air service deal with Greece to help airlines from either of the two countries to take up flying rights in the long term if they spot a viable market opportunity.

The bilateral agreement means that airlines would offer passengers a single ticket for flights in a number of flights.

Air traffic liberalization — what some in Greece call “neo-liberalism…” — in New Zealand is driven by its International Air Transport Policy, launched in August 2012 and this has led to around 40 or new amended agreements.
