Air New Zealand has just announced the biggest overhaul of its domestic ticket prices in more than a decade. This means from today, the Kiwi carrier is slashing domestic fares by up to 50%.

Air New Zealand is shrinking fares on 41 domestic routes with one-way seat fares leading in from as low as $39 for flights from Christchurch to Queenstown; Wellington to Napier, Auckland to Rotorua and more.

Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon said the price reduction would see more than three-quarters of a million seats a year available for less than $50. NICE.


“We are making travel more affordable than ever for Kiwis so that they can explore more of their own backyard, connect with family and friends and attend the amazing events we have around the nation,” he said.

Air New Zealand’s longest domestic service (the two-hour 1,174 kilometre direct flight between Auckland and Invercargill launching in August) will have seats available from as little as $79.

“We have shrunk our lowest fares by up to $45 in a move we believe will further supercharge domestic tourism and we’d love to see hotels, rental car companies and tourist experience operators follow our lead.”
