Things are finally starting to look up! Yesterday we learned that New Zealand would drop its isolation requirements for fully vaccinated travellers after they arrive in New Zealand.
At the same time, Air New Zealand is ramping up its flights to and from New Zealand, Australia and further afield. In addition, the latest isolation requirements mean that Kiwis in Australia and NZ can enter the country again without having to factor in extra time off.

10% Discount – Flight Hacks Exclusive
At Flight Hacks, we love working with Air New Zealand, and today we’ve partnered again to offer our readers an exclusive 10% discount on all flights to the USA and Canada.
The discount will be available in all classes, so whether it’s economy or Business Premier, you will enjoy 10% off with our code “HACKS10”.
To claim this deal, the kind people at Air New Zealand have set up a dedicated page for us, which you can find here.
Booking Terms – Hurry Ends March 15
This exclusive discount is only available for a limited time and will expire on March 15, 2022. In terms of travel dates, you can plan as far ahead as November, with the eligible booking window being April 1 (not a joke!) and November 30.
Flight Change Fees Waived
If you happen to lock in a flight between now and June 30, you will also enjoy Air New Zealand’s flexible booking policy, which allows for free date changes on international flights.
After pricing up some examples, here’s how much you can save on a flight in economy from Sydney to Los Angeles via Auckland.
And here’s the savings in Business Premier on the same route.
Some of the best deals can be had on flights from Sydney to Hawaii (Honolulu) in July. Prices in business start at AU$4687, but with our promo code, you can bring that down to AU$4238.
How About NZ Departures?
Unfortunately, our promo is only valid for Air New Zealand flights departing from Australia, so Kiwi Flight Hacks readers do miss out; however if you want to save money, it’s actually cheaper to first book a flight to Australia and then depart from Aus on Air New Zealand. For example, I’ve noticed that the same flights from Auckland are usually more. Depending on the travel class, the saving can be significantly better if you first position to Sydney.
