New Zealand may be on of the furthest countries away from the UK, but its sheer beauty keeps it high on most travel wish lists. So there’s a good choice of flights from UK airports, with most routes flying into Auckland, the capital city. And even with an average flying time of 24 hours, it’s still possible to find good deals on flights to New Zealand.
The country sits deep in the southern hemisphere, and is particularly popular with adventurers and backpackers, who often come for extended trips – with such a long flight and so much to explore, anything less than two weeks will feel rushed.
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a 'cheap' flight to New Zealand – but some are cheaper than others. It can help to avoid the country's summer, between December and February when it’s high season for tourism, and when many Kiwis are flying home to see family for Christmas.
Cheaper flight deals are available in spring (September to November) or autumn (March to May). New Zealand’s dramatic landscape can lend itself to winter holidays, and it's a good time for skiers to be in the mountains of South Island. School holiday pricing starts to push prices up again in July and August.
Choosing the right route is another way to pick up cheaper flights to New Zealand. Many carriers offer low fares on routes with stopovers in their home country, such as Thai Air’s flights to Auckland via Bangkok, or Singapore Airlines’ flights to Dunedin via Singapore.
