New Year's in New Zealand & Summer in Australia

Fares from Washington DC:

    Hey, what are you doing New Year’s Eve? Oh, don’t worry, we aren’t asking you out or anything. I mean, not that we haven’t considered, uhm, asking you out before. You’re great, oh, and really smart too, but really we just wanted to tell you about an Air New Zealand sale on New Year’s travel, see? Depart from Los Angeles December 25 through December 29, or December 31 for $1,428 round-trip to Auckland. Better still, this sale includes a free stopover in Fiji or the Cook Islands. And remember, this is all peak season over there. Sample fares include:

    • San Francisco to Auckland for $1,538 round-trip

    • Los Angeles to Christchurch for $1,527 round-trip

    • San Francisco to Queenstown for $1,726 round-trip

    • Los Angeles to Wellington for $1,504 round-trip

    Book by July 31, and remember that flights from L.A. to Fiji only operate on Mondays, and to the Cook Islands only on Sunday. Seats are pretty limited on return flights in the beginning of January, so you may be coming home later than you’d like.

    If you just can’t wait for New Year’s, Air New Zealand is having another sale on late summer travel to Australia. The same stopover deal applies to these fares too:

    Los Angeles to Sydney for $1,027 round-trip, including all taxes

    San Francisco to Sydney for $1,115 round-trip, including all taxes
