Air New Zealand has slashed its lowest domestic
fares by up to 50%.
Air New Zealand's Chief Executive Officer,
Christopher Luxon, says the move to shrink fares is the biggest
overhaul of the airline's domestic pricing structure in more than
a decade, and will see more than three quarters of a million seats
a year available for less than $50.
"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," said Mr Luxon.
Air New Zealand is shrinking its lowest fares on
41 domestic routes meaning Kiwis will be able to fly within each
island for as low as $39 and between the North Island and South
Island for as low as $39.
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
"We have shrunk our lowest fares by up to $45 in
a move we believe will further supercharge domestic tourism and

winners out of today's announcement. Some of the great new Seat
only fares include Auckland to Gisborne or Kerikeri for $39 and
Auckland to Blenheim or Nelson for $49," Mr Luxon added.
Fares on the airline's main trunk routes are
also shrinking - Auckland-Christchurch and Auckland-Wellington now
start at $49 one- way and Christchurch-Wellington from $39.
