Air New Zealand flight sale from $189 one-way
Explore New Zealand for a steal all through 2018.
You can fly from Melbourne to Christchurch or Melbourne to Auckland one way for $189 on select dates from February to November. The sale fares don't include checked bags but these can be added on by selecting the seat+bag fare option, which starts at $20 extra.
As these are one-way flights, you can be creative and design your own open-jaw flight by flying into one city and out of another. You can easily turn your holiday into a road trip around New Zealand instead of seeing just one city.
Other cheap one-way flights in this sale include Sydney to Christchurch from $190, Sydney to Auckland from $206, Brisbane to Auckland from $200 and Melbourne to Wellington from $208.
Fares in the Air New Zealand sale are available until 14 January, unless sold out prior. Bookings can be made directly through the Air New Zealand website.
How good are these fares?
Regular prices outside of the sale period are upwards of $416 for a one-way flight, meaning you save over $200 for a return flight.
Compared to Air New Zealand's last sale which featured fares from $185 each way (or $370 return), you're looking at slightly pricier fares – though not by much.
The availability of dates through to the end of the year also means that you can choose your preferred season to fly in. Whether you want to experience skiing in Queenstown or the beauty of Lake Tekapo in the spring, this sale gives you a lot more options than usual.
