Freedom Air Christchurch Fares Heat Up Winter

Travel at this price is for the period between 1 July and 16 September 2004. *Airfares exclude an $8 insurance surcharge and all other taxes.

Rachel Gardiner, Freedom Air sales and marketing manager, says the latest fares can save Cantabrians time and money on Trans Tasman travel. “Freedom Air is the only airline that flies direct from Christchurch to the Gold Coast,” she says. “Our direct flights and really, really small fares mean that our passengers have more time and money to spend soaking up the sun in Queensland.”
