If you’re looking to get away to New Zealand or Australia this summer, now is the PERFECT Time to buy! You can go snow skiing in New Zealand or visit Queensland and the Barrier reef when the temperatures drop down to comfortable levels! And to help facilitate this, Air New Zealand has launched a 72 hour sale that will get you from the USA to New Zealand for less! Air New Zealand is offering $500 off Premium Economy Seats and $700 off Lay Flat Business Class Seats. Although there are no fare specials for economy, this is your chance to fly down under for MUCH less than normal! When searching your ticket use promo code use Premium500 for Premium Economy and Premium700 for Biz.
When doing a quick search from LA I found Premium Economy Seats for as low as $2100 to Auckland and $2200 to Sydney using this deal! Business class seats started around 5K to Auckland and 7K for Sydney! Although this may seem a bit steep, competitors are offering fares around $3100+ for premium economy to AUK and $2800 to SYD. Biz class tickets to AUK are pricing out around $5k to AUK and $7k to SYD. However cheaper options for business class are showing up on non-dominating carriers like Air Tahiti Nui, China Southern, and Hawaiian.
Air New Zealand is known for their award winning service and having some of the best and most innovated seats in their class. If you fly Premium economy you can fly on the only “Space Seat” in the industry or fly Business and enjoy a flying bed with 5 star services and an extensive wine list! So if you want to spend your summer snowboarding down under or exploring the barrier reef in bearable “winter” temperatures, now is your time to get away and save!
