Air New Zealand touches down for 2017 season

Bookings keep coming in from the “Visit Rainbow Beach” New Zealand promotion by Rainbow Beach Cooloola Coast Community News. Here’s a great review:

Wonderful Holiday

Thank you Annie and Michael for making our stay in Rainbow Beach complete. We have spent a week at Rainbow Getaway Holiday Apartments and had a fabulous time. The one bedroom apartment was ideal, just what we needed. Any concerns we had were dealt with immediately….Thank you again. Will stay next time we are on Rainbow Beach.

Since last month, direct Auckland – Sunshine Coast, Air New Zealand flights are bringing the first of thousands of visitors for the season from across the Tasman.

In its sixth year of operation, services will be available to and from the Sunshine Coast up to four times per week, from today through until October 29, 2017.

Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford said, “We are the only Queensland RTO with a representative in Auckland and that presence is allowing us to focus strongly on driving visitation from our number one international market.

“Our recent Sunshine by Lunchtime campaign with Air New Zealand and Tourism Events Queensland was timed specifically to be in market in the chilly month of May and increase sales in the lead up to the flight services commencing today.

“The short direct flight is the perfect avenue for a holiday break to warm up our Kiwi friends and encourage them to enjoy the diversity of experiences, events, food and wine available on the Sunshine Coast.”

A total of 66,000 New Zealanders visited the Sunshine Coast in the year ending March 2017, a 5.5% increase on the previous year.

New Zealand is the number one international visitor market for the Sunshine Coast.
