Fly from Nelson to AKL

Our Cathay Pacific flight from AKL leaves on Jan 19 at 9 am after our 7 week trip. Long flight to Hong Kong, Vancouver, and then New York.

We are planning on flying from Nelson back to AKL to catch our flight. Originally, I was going to return to AKL on Jan 17 to ensure that we made our flight home in case there are any problems with our flight and it got cancelled . But there are a lot of flights from Nelson to AKL on a daily basis, so would it be safe to just wait until Jan 18 - the day before our international flight?

Or we could spend a day in Auckland sightseeing or go a day early and spend two days in Auckland. What are your thoughts?

Thanks for any feedback.

Hi Joyce, fy to Auckland on the 18th.

That allows an extra day to explore Nelson and Abel Tasman :)

I'd definitely fly back on the 18 - otherwise you're wasting precious holiday time
