04 Oct 2010

Air New Zealand has signed up IBM for five more years to provide the airline with business and technology services.

Back in August Gen-i elbowed its way into Air New Zealand by announcing a deal to design, deliver and support a second data centre located in a Tier 3 carrier grade facility in Airedale Street, Auckland.

Jennifer Moxon, Managing Director, IBM New Zealand, explained, “IBM has been supporting Air New Zealand’s business for the last thirteen years and this agreement reflects the strength of this long-standing business relationship.

"Over the next seven years, we will continue to work closely with Air New Zealand to fulfil their business needs and to provide support through innovative solutions and services.

Signed in September, IBM will provide new mainframe and virtual hosting services.
