BEST TIME TO GO ON HOLIDAY TO NEW ZEALAND

Travelling to New Zealand takes approximately 25 hours, so we recommend breaking your journey in South East Asia or California. Located in the southern hemisphere, the weather in New Zealand is opposite to ours. Summer runs from December to late February, with the latter month seeing the highest temperatures (20-30c). The mild climate in Spring (September to November) and Autumn (March to May) make these seasons a beautiful time to visit New Zealand. With many ski fields dotted across the country, Winter (June to August) is also a wonderful time for travelling to New Zealand. It really is a year-round destination!

NEW ZEALAND FLIGHT INFORMATION

Flights to New Zealand with Air New Zealand operate via Los Angeles or Hong Kong - the journey time is approximately 25 hours in total. Several other airlines including Singapore Airlines and Malaysia Airlines also fly to New Zealand. Ask your consultant about stopover options or upgrading to Premium Economy or Business Premier.
