Award-winning Air New Zealand offers travellers so much more than just a vessel to your destination. With service from North America to nine Australian cities, and even a nonstop option to the Cook Islands, Air New Zealand is the premier carrier of choice for many when it comes to touring the South Pacific.
Here are some extraordinary reasons this internationally acclaimed airline is a great choice for visiting Australia:
Transit to Australia or beyond on the same airline
Canadians generally don’t travel all the way to the South Pacific to visit just one destination. Start in the Cook Islands, go and explore Australia, and onward to New Zealand before heading home. Auckland is a great hub to connect through whether you’re en route to Australia or island hopping in the Pacific.
Travelling onward through Auckland on the same airline also means you don’t need to clear customs or even collect your bags—a seamless transit experience, and super easy for multi-destination travel!
Your vacation starts the moment you board
From the moment you step onboard, Air New Zealand’s Kiwi hospitality will make you feel like your vacation has already begun. You’ll notice the approachable and friendly attitude of the team, as well as the accommodating and down-to-earth onboard service. From slimline seats to delicious gourmet cuisine, as well as hundreds of hours of in-flight entertainment from movies to TV shows and top 40 hits at the tap of a finger, this is how your getaway should truly kick off! You’ll love the selection of New Zealand’s most awarded, and much-loved, wines—complimentary!
Fly any way you like
Seat selections abound! Try Air New Zealand’s unique “Skycouch”; it’s a row of economy seats that turn into a couch after takeoff, great for stretching out or making a play area for smaller travellers. No worries about sharing with a stranger, either, as when you upgrade to Skycouch, you get the entire row to yourself!
Premium economy is an option that offers a super comfy and roomy armchair with generous armrests and a leg rest. If you like a good snooze followed by waking up in paradise, we recommend business premier option, with a soft leather seat that transforms into a luxurious lie-flat bed.
It’s an award-winning airline
From winning the 2018 airlinerating.com airline of the year award (for the fifth year in a row!) to being voted Conde Nast Traveller’s best airline in the world, and the Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice 2017 Best Premium Economy Class in the World, Air New Zealand goes above and beyond to ensure you’ll be well looked after during your entire flight.
In addition to being a top-tier airline, Air New Zealand offers competitive rates to Australia. Exclusive sales are offered to agencies regularly; contact your travel provider for more information.
