Four key reforms set to boost trans-Tasman travel

 The Australia New Zealand Leadership Forum has called for four key reforms to be implemented in order to boost trans-Tasman travel and enhance trade in both countries.

The Forum has aimed to boost airline and tourism revenues and advocate for making trans-Tasman flights equivalent to domestic Australia and New Zealand flights.

The policy paper realeased today said the Tourism and Transport Forum recommended cutting travel times at major Australian airports, as well as opening up more Australian regional airports to trans-Tasman flights.

A common Australian/New Zealand visa has been introduced to encourage visitors to combine the two countries in one trip and it is hoped that revenue for tourism and airlines can be boosted.

Forum Australia Co-Chair Rod McGeoch said the Forum supports TTF’s recommendation and hopes the improved trade relations will enhance business with Asia.
