Virgin Australia and Air New Zealand can get you there, but who has the better deal?

The airline war is on with Virgin Australia and Air New Zealand dropping a New Zealand flight sale in our laps this morning.

Both carriers are offering starting fares from $189 each way and both offer direct, full-service fares. So which deal is better?

When it comes to cheap flight options, Virgin Australia is the winner with more than a handful of $189 flights up for grabs, including Gold Coast to Auckland, Brisbane to Christchurch, Brisbane to Wellington, Melbourne to Auckland, Sydney to Wellington, Melbourne to Christchurch and Sydney to Auckland. Air New Zealand on the other hand is only selling its Melbourne to Auckland route this low.

All other fares are either on par or cheaper with Virgin Australia. For example, Melbourne to Queenstown starts at $229 each way with Virgin Australia or $239 with Air New Zealand. Brisbane to Dunedin starts at $199 with Virgin Australia or $209 with Air New Zealand.

Where Air New Zealand has the upper hand is in its travel dates, which range from July 2018 to March 2019. Virgin Australia on the other hand has travel dates restricted to July to December 2018.

If you're planning on travelling to New Zealand in 2018, Virgin Australia has our vote here. If 2019 is more your style, then you might want to consider Air New Zealand, or wait a while to see what other last-minute flight sales come your way.

Either way, both sales end at 11:59pm on 3 July 2018.
