A new 10 year partnership between Emirates and Qantas will see improvements to flights from Australia to New Zealand.
Emirates will introduce a daily A380 service from Melbourne to Auckland in October and improve schedules for flights into Christchurch and Auckland.
Qantas CEO Alan Joyce says the partnership will result in a seamless international network.
"Emirates is one of the world's best airlines. With an all widebody fleet, an amazing global network and a wonderful reputation for quality."
The partnership means Qantas' extensive Australian domestic network will be opened up for Emirates customers.
