Air NZ reveals plans for black jet

Air New Zealand is going All Black.

The airline today revealed its plan to paint one of its new domestic jets black to support New Zealand rugby.

"Our first new A320 will arrive in January sporting a sleek black livery complete with silver fern motif and Koru on its tail," said chief executive Rob Fyfe.

Air New Zealand has sponsored the New Zealand Rugby Football union, including the All Blacks, for almost 17 years.

The black plane would operate on main domestic New Zealand routes from February, said Mr Fyfe.
