Hop across the pond with New Zealand flights from $189 each way

Cristal Dyer 24 May 2018 NEWS

Discounted flights available to five cities.

In the latest Air New Zealand sale, trans-Tasman flights are now available from just $189 return.

The lowest fares are from Sydney or Melbourne to Christchurch but you can also find flights from $199 each way between Brisbane and Dunedin, Gold Coast and Christchurch or Gold Coast and Christchurch.

Discounted fares are also available from Adelaide, Cairns and Perth to Christchurch, Auckland, Dunedin, Queenstown and Wellington.

Travel is for select dates between 13 June and 12 December 2018 and 15 January to 31 March 2019. You can take your pick of a winter snow vacation or choose some of the later dates to experience New Zealand during summer.

Some of these fares are available only until 25 May, however others are on sale until 30 May - if they don't sell out sooner.

Search for your preferred destination below, or head straight over to Air New Zealand online to grab your seats.

How good are these fares?

Compared to the current Virgin Australia sale, fares are on par for the most part but some routes are actually a bit cheaper. You’re saving $10 each way flying between Melbourne and Queenstown or between Sydney and Christchurch.

Travel dates are much more extensive with Air New Zealand and you also have more options for departure cities and destinations.
