New Zealand flights from $189 during snow season
Time to hit the slopes with these cool Air New Zealand deals.
Air New Zealand is at it again running flights to its home country starting at under $200 each way and the best bit? Some of these sale fares are to Queenstown during snow season.
The cheapest flights take off during a quieter period from 10-30 April and journey between Sydney and Wellington from $189.
The next pricing step up from there are Brisbane to Wellington flights from $190 and then Melbourne to Christchurch, Brisbane to Dunedin, the Gold Coast to Auckland and Gold Coast to Christchurch flights all from $195 each way.
But you're thinking about those snow trip fares, aren't you?
The cheapest way into Queenstown is via Sydney or Brisbane from $298 each way, which is not too shabby when you consider you can fly there from 3 May - 28 June for the beginning of the season, 25 July - 16 September for the in-season and 30 October - 13 December for those who'd prefer to visit in the off-season.
There are also sale flights into Queenstown from Perth starting from $599 each way for similar travel dates.
You have until 28 March to book these flights, though most of the year to catch them. To get on your way visit Air New Zealand online.
How good are these fares?
Whenever flights go down below $200 each way on Air New Zealand, you know you're snagging a bargain. Sure, you can find cheaper on a budget airline, but when you have winter gear to carry, knowing you get the comfort of a highly rated airline as well as the option to tack on a bag for $30 each way could mean all the difference.
Plus, think of those Velocity points!
Flights during the heart of snow season can also skyrocket the later you leave them, and for under $600 return, there's little chance you'll find them cheaper before this season begins. Check out the best fields to hit in our Skiing New Zealand guide.
