Autumn Seat Sell Out A Hit With Kiwi Travellers

Communique No. 1

Welcome to Air New Zealand's new Express Class Media Communique - a quick, responsive way of feeding through information snippets relating to the domestic network which we hope you will find a useful story source

Autumn Seat Sell Out Scores A Hit With Kiwi Travellers Air New Zealand's Express Class domestic seat bonanza has proved a winner with Kiwis looking for travel bargains this Autumn. More than 100,000 of the lower priced fares are still available in the 250,000 Seat Sell Out campaign which began a week ago.

The fastest selling routes are between Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch but interestingly, Christchurch - Invercargill has also sold strongly as has Palmerston North to Auckland and Christchurch, Nelson - Wellington and Auckland - Queenstown.

An additional bonus of the Seat Sell Out campaign has been increased bookings during the past week of the period immediately after the April 29 - June 25 campaign travel period, indicating the sales blitz has stimulated the domestic market generally rather than just within the offer period.

The Seat Sell Out campaign closes on Wednesday, April 16. Booking online at is the cheapest way to access the Seat Sell Out fares, with no service fee payable.
