One of the reasons for the popularity of the North Island as a travel destination is due to the wide range of travel options available to get you there.  Never before has there been such a wide selection of flights and airlines to choose from. Even cruise lines can be added to the list of options when making your way to New Zealand’s beautiful north.

Air New Zealand, Virgin Australia, Qantas and Jetstar are the local players when it comes to Trans-Tasman air service. Direct links are available from most Australian capital cities to Auckland and Wellington. A number of global carriers also provide direct flights between the two countries, including China Airlines, Emirates and LAN.

Travel Associates has a number of travel options available when flying to the North Island. Ask about a Business Class fare and relax in the quiet comfort of an upgraded cabin. For a more value oriented option, try a multi-class fare. Mixed Class flights allow you to Fly Business Class or Premium Economy on one part of your journey and opt for economy on another and get the best of both worlds – a great fare and superior comfort and service.

A number of cruise lines offer itineraries between the Australian east coast and Auckland. This relaxing 3 to 4 day journey is the perfect way to kick back and relax as you cross the Tasman in style. Enjoy fine dining, all day buffets, brilliant stage productions and a great deal more on these floating palaces. Your Travel Associates consultant can help you choose just the right ship and itinerary for your journey.
