SIA to add 165000 seats to Singapore-Auckland route

More flights from Auckland Airport to Singapore

Air New Zealand Ltd on Thursday said it would cancel and delay some worldwide flights over the coming weeks because engines on its Boeing Co 787-9 jets manufactured by Rolls-Royce Holdings PLC required early maintenance.

Rolls-Royce has advised the carrier that some of the Trent 1000 engines in the airline's Boeing 787-9 fleet require maintenance sooner than previously indicated. The problem was thought to relate to blades in the turbine corroding far earlier than expected, resulting in the engines being shut down.

Tan Kai Ping, Singapore Airlines' senior vice president, marketing planning, said: "Our alliance with Air New Zealand has already benefited customers through more capacity, choice, improved connections and more codeshare destinations".

Authorities have announced an investigation is underway after engine "abnormalities" on two separate Air New Zealand flights in the space of two days saw two flights forced to return to Auckland shortly after take-off.

Schulz fights for 'United States of Europe' by 2025
Schulz became the SPD's top candidate a year ago when he won 100 percent party support in January and saw SPD poll ratings briefly shoot up some 10 percentage points.

Earlier this year, Virgin Atlantic switched one of its daily trans-Atlantic flights to Delta Air Lines, which bought a 49% stake in Virgin Atlantic in 2012, to allow the Trent 1000 engines mounted on its 787 Dreamliners to undergo maintenance.

Rolls-Royce did not have spare engines available while the maintenance work was being undertaken, Air New Zealand said in an announcement to the stock exchange.

It said it would still offer a full flight schedule, and Delta, which has taken over routes from London to NY and Atlanta, would continue to operate these until the end of February.

The Trent 1000 engine has had a number of technical hitches, which the manufacturer has been working hard to resolve, with a wide range of operators in recent years.
