Mates Rates From Freedom Air

One fare, two people! Freedom Air launches a special three-day, two-for-one sale that will put a smile on Kiwi faces.

Until the 10 February 2005 Freedom Air is offering special ‘take-a-mate’ fares to Australia from all six New Zealand ports, Auckland, Hamilton, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.

Fares start from NZD$169 (internet only, one way, excluding taxes levies and surcharges) for two people. The friendly fares are for travel on selected dates between 1 May – 30 June 2005 inclusive.

For example, a couple flying from Hamilton to Brisbane return can pay from NZD$712, including all taxes, levies and surcharges - a saving of close to NZD$380 per couple return. Other fares from New Zealand are:

From To One Way

Auckland Brisbane or Gold Coast

Freedom Air sales and marketing manager Rachel Gardiner says that May/June is an ideal time for a holiday. “As New Zealand heads into winter, we are encouraging people to take a mid year holiday. We recognize that people rarely go away alone so we are offering these really, really small fares so that everyone can take their mate – whether it’s a partner, friend or family member.”

Fares, taxes and insurance surcharges vary between individual Australian ports. For a full list of fares check out www.freedomair.com to calculate a return fare. Other conditions apply to this offer.
