Flights to New Zealand

One of the main reasons that people may decide against going to New Zealand is that from Europe or North America it is a long flight. Not surprising when you consider that the distance direct from London is over 18,000 kilometres! If you go from London to Auckland via the USA it will take roughly 24 hours, and it’s a similar journey length flying via Asia.

Buying Flights

Most travellers arrive into New Zealand at Auckland Airport. It is a half hour drive to the city from the airport. You can get a taxi or use one of the shuttle services, but buses are cheap and run every 30 minutes between the city and the airport.

The simplest, easiest and cheapest way to buy flights to New Zealand is to buy them on the Internet.

We recommed regular checking flights on skyscanner.net to keep upto date on prices.
