As soon as the announcement was made that distancing would no longer be required on planes, Air New Zealand CEO Greg Foran says the airline immediately made more tickets available.
"That put on the market about 160,000 more seats."
In six hours, the airline sold 70,000 seats yesterday, he says.
Foran told Morning Report this is what happens when the airline has the opportunity to operate the domestic airline at full potential.
During level one, the airline's prices increased by 13 percent.
