Tickets on sale for direct Invercargill-Auckland flight

25 January 2019


Air New Zealand will kick off the first ever direct scheduled service between Invercargill and Auckland at the end of August.

Tickets for the Invercargill-Auckland service are now available at www.airnz.co.nz with the lead in fare starting from $83 one way. The airline will operate the direct flight five times a week using its Airbus A320 aircraft.

Air New Zealand Head of Regional Affairs Reuben Levermore says the airline is delighted to get the trial service up and running with the first flight between Auckland and Invercargill scheduled for 25 August.

“We’re committed to supporting the Southland region and we hope the added convenience and great lead in fare on offer will encourage people to get behind this new direct service.”

To coincide with this new route going on sale, Air New Zealand’s Grabaseat has today released seats available at $59 one way, with 500 seats available in each direction for travel between 25 August and 15 December 2019 at www.grabaseat.co.nz.

With a flight time of approximately two hours, the new Invercargill-Auckland service will be the longest domestic Air New Zealand flight.
