New Zealand flights from $168 each way on Air New Zealand

Posted: 12 March 2018 10:17 am

Jump across the pond for at least 11% less than last week.

For today only, Air New Zealand has dropped the dollars on flights across the ditch, bringing fares down as low as $168 each way.

Compared to last week's sale, which had flights down to $189 each way, that's savings of at least $21 each way or 11%.

As mentioned above, this sale is for today only so you've got to be quick. There are only three routes on sale, but all sport amazing fares:

  • Sydney - Christchurch: From $168 each way
  • Melbourne - Christchurch: From $168 each way
  • Brisbane - Christchurch: From $207 each way

These prices are all one-way with returns costing double.

Flights between Sydney and Christchurch are operated by Air New Zealand. However, Melbourne and Brisbane flights will be serviced by Virgin Australia.

These are seat-only fares though you can upgrade your flight to include baggage for a mere $20 each way.

Travel is available between 30 April and 19 September, excluding peak dates.

Keen? You can book your trip before the clock runs out at midnight via Air New Zealand.

How good are these fares?

Compared to last week's sale, you're saving yourself at least 11% on Sydney to Christchurch fares and even more on Melbourne to Christchurch flights, which started at $195 each way.

Sadly, the Brisbane to Christchurch fares aren't quite as good as last week where they were $195 each way (as opposed to $207 this week) but are still in the bargain price range.

It's also very rare to see Air New Zealand selling seats cheaper than $189 with budget airlines such as Jetstar barely able to cost flights this low. So if the destination and the dates are right, the seats and the savings are yours for the taking.
