Air New Zealand said it would suspend flights to Seoul from early next month through to the middle of the year, in addition to the cuts it's already made to its services to China. The coronavirus outbreak is set to cost Air New Zealand as much as $75 million, as it moved to cut more flights to lessen the impact. Weaker forward bookings for travel on the Tasman and domestic networks have also emerged as a result," Air New Zealand said in a statement. It also said it would reduce trans-Tasman capacity by 3 percent and also some domestic services, mainly between Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown. "Air New Zealand is a resilient business and we have demonstrated the ability time and again to respond quickly to changing market conditions."
