Air New Zealand is celebrating its sponsorship of the PGA Pro-Am Championship, which starts this week, with the world's first in-flight game of golf.

Four passengers on each flight will be given the opportunity to putt down the aisle to win a range of golfing prizes. The overall champion will be awarded a prize pack consisting of a VIP trip for two to watch the final day of the inaugural NZ PGA Pro-Am Championship, including flights, accommodation and a brand new set of custom-fitted Callaway RAZR clubs kindly supplied by Callaway, another tournament sponsor.

James Gibson, Air New Zealand’s head of sponsorship, said: “At Air New Zealand we’re crazy about rugby on the outside of our planes and we’re crazy about golf on the inside. We can’t wait for customers to get a slice of the NZ PGA action, before they even set foot on the ground in Queenstown, by taking part in some fun mid-air putting.

“This world-first for entertainment onboard is sure to show off some skills and provide a few thrills for passengers travelling on the all black A320 over the next few days.”

The NZ PGA Championship is being held at The Hills Golf Course in Arrowtown, from 29 March – 1 April.
