Air New Zealand has a sale that gets you across the ditch from just $149

Stephanie Yip 30 October 2018 NEWS

With fares this dirt cheap, you don't have any excuses left for not visiting New Zealand.

There are a number of flight sales to New Zealand running right now, but the one to beat is with Air New Zealand.

They start at a low $149 each way, though if you're after a return flight, you can find New Zealand to Australia one-way flights from $89, giving you a grand total of $238 return.

The cheapest routes are from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane to Christchurch. The next step up includes Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane flights to Auckland at $159 each way or $257 return.

Specific travel dates depend on your route though flights are available between 19 November 2018 and 4 September 2019.

This is a flash sale, ending midnight 2 November, and at these prices, we reckon you'll need to jump on them pretty quick.

Make your booking with Air New Zealand.

How good are these Air New Zealand fares?

  • Price: Great. These are the cheapest flights to New Zealand we've seen on AirNZ all year, bettering its last major price drop by $36 on a return flight. The only way you could get cheaper is by hoping for a Jetstar sale, which can skim the $200 return mark.
  • Airline: Great. Air New Zealand is highly lauded as one of the world's best airlines. It's pretty tough to get better than it. It's a full-service airline but fares to New Zealand are seat only. Bags and meals can be added for a fee.
  • Frequent Flyer Points: On the cheapest flight (Sydney to Christchurch at $238 return), you can earn 2 Airpoints and 14 Status Credits.
  • Travel time: Great. All flights are direct, except Perth to Christchurch which is via Auckland.
  • Weather: Great. You've a nice mix of summer, autumn and winter dates to suit your travel needs and style here.
