Hooray, the trans-Tasman Bubble has opened!

After seeing the flights today, I took a look at a bunch of routes for the next 6 weeks to try and find the cheap dates/destinations with Air New Zealand. There's also the equivalent deal for Jetstar on ozbargain here.

Here are a bunch of routes below. Of course, you can always try different routes, dates and airlines by simply searching at Beat That Flight.

  • I'd question if this is worthy of posting on here. All the prices listed are regular fares as there are currently no sales on right now.

    • These should be return prices. I have a credit from a return flight in Feb last year for $199. Sadly it looks like it’ll have to go towards double that for one way…

      • We likely won't see prices like that ever again… The biggest issue on trans tasman flights is the cost of the taxes (which have increased over the last 12 months despite no one traveling)

        Using SYD-AKL as an example, these are the taxes charged on a return fare:

        Australia Passenger Services Charge Departure International (WY) - A$111.20
        New Zealand Passenger Service Charge International Arrivals (KK) - A$32.40
        New Zealand Border Clearance Levy International Arrival (F1) - A$18.70
        Australia Passenger Movement Charge PMC (AU) - A$60.00
        New Zealand Passenger Security Charge International (IA) - A$15.10

        Total Taxes - $237.4

        As these are taxes paid directly to the government, a $199 ticket means they'll lose money having to pay the government… anything above the $237.40 taxes goes towards paying for the staff, the plane etc and for the immediate future they won't want to be losing money given the last 12 months they haven't been making much.

    • To be fair, two weeks ago prices were double this (friend was booking for her mum to fly over). Then the bubble opened and they dropped. Still not pre-covid prices tho :/

  • for a 3hr flight, is Air NZ so much better than Jetstar?

    • It depends on what you're looking for, if it's just the cheapest flight then obviously book with the cheapest however Air NZ does have a few benefits.

      Air New Zealand has 6 product types across the Tasman…

      The three that most people purchase are:

      • Seat - fare comparable to Jetstar with 7kg carry on only, additional fee for seat selection and no food and drinks but unlike Jetstar it comes with free tea/coffee, free wifi on A320/1neos and an inflight TV screen with free TV shows.
      • Seat and Bag - generally $20 more and same as above but includes a 23kg checked bag.
      • The Works - generally $40 more (than the seat fare) but includes all above with a full meal, drinks (including alcohol), movies and free seat selection.

      Air NZ aircraft have different legroom depending on the location on the aircraft, those who purchase a seat or seat and bag fare are likely to be seated towards the back of the plane which has about the same (or sometimes less) legroom than Jetstar.

    • Good question as return on Jetstar is same cost as Air NZ one way,

      I haven’t tried Air NZ yet but I believe they have less cancelled flights than Jetstar which can be an inconvenience

    • In my experience air new Zealand leaves Jetstar in the dust even if Jetstar had $50 trips to new Zealand I would still pay any other airline more so to not fly with Jetstar .

  • Hobart to Auckland 6pm arrival, an awkward time for picking up a rental campervan or such…

  • Totally agree with Henrus.

    I come here looking for bargains, but in this post (and many others of a similar nature) I see a huge grid of links that really doesn't give the reader anything useful.

    This is just advertising for "beat that flight".

  • I agree, this is just advertising now.. this post should be removed as there are no "deals"

    Just advertising for Beat That Flight

  • On 2nd thought, I'm giving this a neg because when you actually click through these flights are booked via BYOJet.

    The prices via BYOJet are ~$3-10 cheaper than going with Air New Zealand directly however if the bubble were to pop, Air New Zealand lets you cancel even the cheapest of flights and receive a credit allowing you to rebook for travel through to 2023.

    In fact, when booking direct via Air NZ you don't even need a reason to cancel, just go to manage booking and select a credit regardless of the fare type (for travel to 31 Dec 2021), likewise, you can change dates for free (just the fare difference applies).

    Instead, BYOJet charges $55 per change (unless you add on their $19 admin package which then makes them more expensive than Air NZ direct) and recent reviews of BYOJet aren't glowing either.

  • What are the savings, what were the original prices?
    Not a deal, it's an advertisement.

    • 1) 'New' route - couldn't fly this in last year
      2) Until yesterday would cost an additional $3100 and 2 weeks in isolation
      3) Two weeks ago, prices were double this (had a friend book for her mother, then when these prices came out, called and got half her money back!)

      Definitely not pre-covid prices, and airport taxes also mean we probably won't see those again, but hey.

      • You are clutching at straws, I think the community is getting over the advertising for your website.

        Neg as it's not a deal booking via 3rd party websites with additional conditions in Covid times
