Air New Zealand’s Head of Global Brand Development Jodi Williams says the airline expects to be inundated with couples wanting to have a unique wedding experience so they can demonstrate their love to the world.

“We expect this marriage at 30,000 feet to attract significant global media interest. 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,” Jodi continues.

“Jesse has been deeply committed to campaigning for marriage equality,” Jodi adds. “The fact that he is prepared to travel from the United States to be here demonstrates the historic nature of this event.”

Jesse couldn’t be happier to participate in the New Zealand Air’s event celebrating New Zealand’s first same-sex marriages.

“Justin and I are thrilled to be taking part in witnessing this historic moment for New Zealand!” says Jesse. “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. and beyond, means so much to us. We cannot wait to celebrate this joyous occasion with Air New Zealand!”

Jodi says the lucky winner will also get the honeymoon of a lifetime.

“We’re shouting them a honeymoon to Palm Springs in California. It’ll be an amazing time there escaping the cold Kiwi winter.”
