There’s still time to catch special pricing to Australia with Air New Zealand, in an end-of-summer partnership campaign by the airline and Tourism Australia. Between them, they are offering a fare of $1,578 to any one of six cities in Australia from Vancouver, via Air New Zealand’s hub in Auckland. The campaign pricing is available until Sept. 2.
Buyers get their choice of six cities in Oz — Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Adelaide and Coolangatta/The Gold Coast from the Canadian gateway of Vancouver. Air NZ is a Star Alliance partner, easing Canadian connections and baggage processing. Travel must take place between Oct. 18-Nov. 25, 2014 or Feb. 1 – Jun. 8, 2015.
Fourteen trade partners consisting of wholesalers, retailers and consortia agents have agreed to participate and are extending the campaign reach. Last year’s partnership saw a 50% increase in sales year over year. Out of Vancouver, travellers can experience Air New Zealand’s Economy Skycouch and Premium Economy Spaceseats. http://www.airnewzealand.ca/flights-to-australia
