Air NZ wedding

Air NZ offers first same-sex wedding at 30,000ft

Air New Zealand is offering a lucky Kiwi couple the chance to become the nation's first same sex newlyweds, with the prize of a wedding ceremony at 30,000ft on a flight between Queenstown and Auckland.

Same sex marriage will be legal in New Zealand from August 19th and the airline is looking for a couple who want to commemorate the historic day by being the first high-flying couple to take advantage of the new legislation. Actor and campaigner for same sex marriages, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, will also be on the flight to celebrate with the winning couple.

"We expect this marriage at 30,000 feet to attract significant interest," said Jodi Williams, head of brand development at Air New Zealand. "Naturally, the couple’s family and friends will want to be on hand for the special occasion so we have plenty of seats set aside for them. Jesse Tyler Ferguson being present will make the day even more memorable," added Ms Williams.
Modern Family

Ferguson, the star of hit sitcom Modern Family, and his fiancé, Justin Mikita, launched the 'Tie The Knot' campaign in the US in support of same sex marriage, and are active supporters of marriage equality legislation around the world.

"We cannot wait to celebrate this joyous occasion with Air New Zealand," said Ferguson. "Justin and I are thrilled to be taking part in witnessing this historic moment for New Zealand! After launching 'Tie The Knot', our bow tie campaign for marriage equality in the U.S., it is clear that the journey towards marriage, both in the U.S. & beyond, means so much to us," said the actor.

Same sex couples from New Zealand who wish to enter the competition must share their love story at www.flyingsocialnetwork.com before 26th July, and the winners also get a honeymoon in Palm Springs, USA to complete the dream wedding experience.
