Will the traffic-free skies of the past few months put more environmental pressure on the industry or is this a good opportunity to reset along greener lines?

We see this as a good opportunity to reset. Solving carbon emissions remains critical and we now have further impetus to be bold.

Obviously. one of the benefits of lockdown has been less air pollution and carbon emissions, which is a great outcome. It has become increasingly clear we need to balance a reduction in emissions with the huge amount of good airlines do for the economy in terms of connecting people and products, and creating jobs.

Tell us about your diversity program and why it is so important?

Just as it was before COVID-19 struck, diversity remains critical to all Air New Zealanders. We remain very proud of our heritage and accomplishments to date and will be as focused on this in the near term as we ever have been.
