Air New Zealand has been significantly impacted by COVID-19 in recent months. Air New Zealand has continued to respond with a focused strategy to build a thriving company into the future with the Operations Support team playing a significant role in this strategy.

Challenges here are a given, and they are challenges that get you excited about what lies ahead. We are results focused and reward those who achieve results through hard work and thinking differently. We are an organisation that encourages you to succeed, grow and aspire to your full potential.

Reporting to the Navigation Services Manager you will control the navigation data on board our aircraft and in our flight planning systems. You will help identify opportunities for more efficient use of airspace and identify more efficient navigation opportunities for our fleet. A key part of this role will also be to influence service provider procedures, to minimise delays and costs incurred by airlines.

  • You’ll be able to look for process and policy improvements and be able to articulate this to a wide audience
  • You’ll be able to quickly assimilate information from complex systems
  • You’ll have a deep understanding of how an airline operates and how the aircraft interacts with the airspace environment
  • You’ll be comfortable operating with new tools and developing new processes
  • You’ll be able to readily collaborate across cross-functional teams using collaboration tools.
  • Why would I like this role?

    You’ll enjoy working with a wide range of stakeholders from pilots and planners to airspace providers both domestically and internationally. You will maintain the company’s suite of flight management system navigation databases and also key navigation components of the flight planning system. We lead the world in fuel efficient flight planning practices, and you will help us to maintain and develop this capability. 

    To be successful in this role you will be an experienced Aircraft Navigator, Military or Commercial Pilot or Air Traffic Controller, with either an ATP licence or recognised aviation degree with appropriate navigation qualifications. We will also consider applicants with relevant airline operations experience. You will have a minimum of five years operational experience.
