Air New Zealand has announced it will operate five additional A320 services between Auckland and Dunedin, adding 75,000 seats to the route.

The new flights will enable Dunedin travellers to make more convenient connections to flights across the Tasman or onto other international departures.

Air New Zealand chief revenue officer Cam Wallace made the announcement in Dunedin while speaking at the TRENZ travel showcase.

"Dunedin is a really important part of Air New Zealand's network, so it's tremendous to see continued strong demand for services to and from the city," he said.

Dunedin Airport chief executive officer Richard Roberts says the new services reflect the partnership between the two organisations.

The new services will be taking place from October 29.
