Santa Comes Early For Freedom Flyers

Santa Comes Early For Freedom Flyers

With Christmas only a little more than two months away it’s time to finalise those gift lists and plan festive get-togethers with friends and loved ones.

And what better way to take care of the festive celebrations than with one of Freedom Air’s really, really small pre-Christmas fares to a wonderfully warm Australian destination? Freedom Air is offering the special trans-Tasman fares for travel between 01 November – 15 December 2004 inclusive.

An ideal time for an early Christmas with Ozzie relatives or for finding some unique stocking fillers. The following one way fares are only available online at http://www.freedomair.com until 27 October 2004.

Bookings can also be made through the Reservation Centre on 0800 600 500 where a service fee of $10 each way, per adult, applies.

Freedom Air sales and marketing manager Rachel Gardiner says Freedom’s pleased to be able to offer these affordable trans-Tasman offers leading up to the Christmas break.

“Christmas is a special time of year and catching up with relatives is important to all of us. We hope our low, low fares will encourage New Zealanders to visit one of our great Ozzie destinations whether they are planning an early catch-up with family or just want to finish up their Christmas shopping.

Gardiner says seats at these fares are limited and may not be available on all dates due to popular demand. “We suggest you get in quick and take advantage of cheap travel before the Christmas/New Years period!” Taxes and insurance surcharges vary between individual Australian departure ports so check out www.freedomair.com or call 0800 600 500 to calculate a return fare.

Other conditions may also apply to this offer. Freedom Air is 100% owned by Air New Zealand.
