A business-class vaccination center
Air New Zealand will convert a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner into a special vaccination clinic to encourage Auckland residents to get vaccinated in a celebration called “Super Saturday”.
The event will be part of Kiwi Airline’s campaign to demand that international passengers be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 under the slogan ‘No jab, no fly’. New Zealand hopes to open its borders by 2022.
Auckland residents will be able to board the JabSeat planes, where they will receive the vaccine and enjoy onboard service and Air New Zealand service. Additionally, passengers will be able to tour the hangar, tour the 787’s first-class cabins, enjoy free snacks, and get a special boarding pass to remember the moment.
âVaccines are essential to protect our communities and reopen New Zealand. We are preparing to reunite the families and bring the Kiwis to their vacation spots, but New Zealand needs to get vaccinated first. The more you can participate in Super Saturday, the better, âsaid Captain David Morgan, Director of Safety and Operational Integrity for Air New Zealand.
He said: âWe know the people of Auckland were going through a difficult time and we hope that the idea of ââboarding an international plane for the first time in a long time will wake some spirits and encourage people to protect themselves. . “it will be fine.”
âAs New Zealand’s national airline, we are very supportive of vaccines. This latest push follows our mandate that all essential Air New Zealand employees be vaccinated and we recently announced a âno jab, no flyâ policy for those on our international flights.
Passengers will board the main entrance of the Business Premier section, where they will receive their first dose of vaccine pfizer, in the hand chosen by the customer. After getting vaccinated, you will proceed to the main economy class cabin where the snack and beverage service will begin.
While passengers wait to disembark after a brief observation, they can enjoy the on-board entertainment service.
The use of face masks will be mandatory during the flight on Saturday and the distancing measures will also be maintained, which will ensure better protection of the health of the customer and the crew.
