Hi

June is a good time to fly from NZ because it is not school holidays so fares should be more competitive.

I always fly AirNZ so can't comment on other prices. But if you keep an eye on this AirNZ link you'll see specials coming up from time to time for internet bookings.

airnewzealand.co.nz/special-deals-pacific-is…

It's too early for any specials for next June but still worth keeping an eye out to get an idea of general prices so you can pounce if specials come up which are often only open for a few days.

Auckland, New...

Air Pacific offer a direct flight from Auckland to Suva on Mondays and Fridays if you are planning on holidaying closer to the eastern side of Viti Levu.

Hi Bind23,

The flight from Auckland to NADI takes 3hours and 5minutes exactly (I've done it 36 times at least!) This is for an Airbus or a 737 or 737 extended series. Business class available only on 737's I remember.

Air NZ flies from Auckland to Nadi, Christchurch-Nadi (but not all year round & takes longer) Wellington-Nadi (only at certain times of the year) Air Pacific (Auckland-Nadi, Christchurch-Nadi) (certain times of the year & takes longer), and Air Pacific also flies Auckland to Suva (Nasouri Airport). I find Air NZ tends to be a little cheaper with several different grades of 'seat charges' (i.e. depending on luggage weight, meals required etc.) But look for the specials.

Look up www.airnewzealand.co.nz or www.airnewzealand.com (for a USA site) Air NZ can be booked UP to 11 months ahead. Cheers Flicarose

Hmmm

AirNZ shows the AKL/NAD flight schedules as being 3 hours exactly, but they are sometimes faster. Return flights 3 or 3.10 depending on aircraft. Winds can make a big difference to flight times so a flight time can never be exact.

Air NZ has not flown 737s to Fiji for a long time, at least not from Auckland. The Airbus 320 does not have business class, but the 767 and 777 planes do. All 3 operate on the AKL/NAD sector on different days.

The link I gave will show the "Seats to Suit" fares with the varying inclusions.

I can't see any reason to fly to Suva rather than Nadi unless you are going to that city or somewhere very near. Just about all international flights go to Nadi.

You'll be able to look at fares on this link and, as I said before, look on the other link for specials from time to time. Again you'll be able to check the flights from Christchurch as well. I would guess that the fare would be greater from there (further south) and I'm sure there wouldn't be as many flights as from Auckland.

Thanks Nzlilibet!!!Actually this is my very first time no I don't know nothing at all...That's why I was asking where should I go...Now I know we'll go for Nadi...

We'll go first Auckland, fly to Queenstown

Then Milford

Then Aoraki/Mt Cook

Then Tasman glacier

Then Christchurch

After this I don't know should we go to Fiji from Christchrch or come back from Christch to Auckland and take flight from there to Fiji?...

Thanks a lot everyone!!

Hi again

Being an Aucklander, I am totally ignorant about flights from Christchurch. So just took a quick look at flights from Christchurch to Nadi and it looks as though there are very few direct flights. Most seem to go to Auckland or Wellington to catch the international flight. And I think that in the case of Auckland it would mean changing from the domestic to the international terminal.

When you've got an idea of when this trip would be suggest you have a look at the flight schedules using this link.

airnewzealand.co.nz/schedules/headeritd.aspx…

Hopefully someone from Christchurch may have more idea. But I know I quite often read complaints about the cost of domestic flights to connect with international flights from Auckland. So it may even work out cheaper to get a cheap flight from Christchurch and then, if you're lucky, a discounted fare to Nadi. But the cheaper fares to Nadi would normally be booked in advance, not at the last minute.

This is the link to cheap domestic fares which change by the day and date.

I think I've confused myself here, so I'm sure I've confused you even more. LOL
