History of Air New Zealand

Air New Zealand began as Tasman Empire Airways Limited in 1940. It operated flying boats over short-distances. The main routes were from Auckland to Sydney, Wellington, and Fiji. In 1960 the company ended its flying boat operation and took up the propeller. In 1965 TEAL became Air New Zealand, with the government holding half of the shares in the company.

With their new fleet, the company began crossing oceans towards the USA and Asia. Honolulu and Los Angeles were added to the network of destinations. In 1982 the airline added flights to London, UK. In the 1990s the airline underwent several ownership battles. At several points from 1990 to 2000 the airline nearly claimed bankruptcy after some poor decisions but the New Zealand government re-nationalized the airline, bailing it out. Today the airline is facing hard economic times as a consequence of the global economic crisis and high oil prices.
