Campaign encourages visitors to explore more of New Zealand

28 September 2018

Air New Zealand and Tourism New Zealand team up on campaign encouraging visitors to explore more of New Zealand

Regional New Zealand is set to benefit from an Air New Zealand and Tourism New Zealand joint venture campaign offering North American visitors a free domestic flight from Auckland to anywhere on the airline’s network.

The online campaign which is running throughout September allows customers in the United States and Canada to add on a domestic fare to another New Zealand destination at no extra cost when booking through Air New Zealand.

Air New Zealand Regional General Manager Americas Liz Fraser says the campaign is all about getting visitors to discover as much of New Zealand as possible during their visit.

“We want to help spread visitor spending across the regions, so everyone can enjoy the economic benefits tourism brings.”

Tourism New Zealand Chief Executive, Stephen England-Hall adds, “The campaign is an attractive way to encourage visitors into the regions to explore the vast range of attractions and activities they offer. Regional visitation is one of our main priorities and delivers long term economic, social and employment benefits to our communities and their people.”

The campaign is running in the United States and Canada through until the end of September.
