Air New Zealand celebrates 75 years of flying with themed flight and themed ferry commute

75 Cake Shot AucklandAir New Zealand celebrated its 75th anniversary with a themed trans-Tasman flight, with the airline also taking over Sydney’s Lady Herron Ferry to provide commuters with a themed day of travel and access to an exhibition highlighting the airline’s history.

Yesterday’s themed Auckland to Sydney service featured a 1940s styled menu and a mid-air fashion show of the airline’s uniforms through the decades.

Sydney ferry passengers travelling to the city from Rose Bay saw the Lady Herron Ferry transformed to resemble a 1940s flying boat, similar to the airline’s first ever service which took nine hours to travel from Auckland to Sydney.

Actors recreated the 1940s flight experience for commuters while ‘The Starr Sisters’ provided 1940s style entertainment.

An exhibition highlighting the history of the airline will remain on the Lady Herron for one week.
