Demand Is High For The Magic Of The Aurora With More Flights Added

If you've always wanted to experience the Aurora, now is the time! Viva Expeditions has released a second flight, with a third in the pipeline, taking you on a journey to experience the Southern Lights… also known as the Aurora Australis. 

If you’ve always wanted to experience the Aurora, now is the time! Viva Expeditions has released a second flight, with a third in the pipeline, taking you on a journey to experience the Southern Lights… also known as the Aurora Australis. 

You may have read our article last week about the Aurora Australis scenic flights from New Zealand with Viva Expeditions.

Well, it is now confirmed the first flight to the Southern Lights is now FULL & a second flight will now take place the following day on 21 March.

While the first flight virtually sold out in the higher categories within days the Viva’s team had to pause before the announcement of the second date to get on top of requests & existing waitlists.

Already Business class & Premium economy are sold out on the second flight and Viva are waitlisting people for a potential 3rd flight in May.

“I believe we have enough demand for a third flight and we already have people waitlists for certain categories and we haven’t yet publicly announced even the second flight date,” says Viva’s founder Rachel Williams.

“This is the first time we have seen agents and clients excited about something for many months now. It’s wonderful!”

Rachel Williams, Viva’s founder.

There is also a window for optimal Aurora viewing between 8th & 17th May around the dark moon – so fingers crossed for more flights at this time.

Experiencing Aurora

Viewing of Aurora is a magical experience. People from all over the world for years have travelled north to Norway, Sweden, Iceland and other northerly points in hope of seeing Aurora.

Viva believes people will travel from all over the world to experience a Flight to the Lights, creating another drawcard attraction for overseas visitors coming to New Zealand once the borders reopen. (Hopefully very soon for Aussies).

What’s included?

The return 10-hour flight to the Southern Lights on Air New Zealand Dreamliner includes:

  • Inflight meals & bar service
  • A team of expert Astronomers to guide
  • COVID-19 guarantee (should the flight be cancelled due to COVID-19, a refund will be issued – conditions apply)
  • Onboard photographer to guide you on how best to capture the Southern Lights
  • Sales support from a team of travel experts.

Flights are with Air New Zealand and are priced from NZ$1195 per person with various seating options and views available.

The Flights to the Southern Lights will be carbon neutral as Viva will be offsetting the emissions for all passengers on board. We want to operate in a sustainably conscious way, that balances positive commercial attraction for New Zealand”

“We are committed to caring for New Zealand and New Zealanders, that is our Taiki promise”.
