Group General Manager Australasia Bruce Parton says that over the next three days the airline’s ludicrously low fares website, grabaseat, will make available 1500 one-way Seat fares on selected flights between 16 New Zealand destinations and Christchurch.
“The Christchurch economy needs your help and as we countdown to Christmas we reckon there are plenty of non-Cantabs who would love to fly in for free to do their Christmas shopping, catch up with friends or just enjoy some of the great food and wine the region has to offer.
“We also recognise that a lot of Christchurch residents need to get away for a break but can’t afford to. We hope free fares to 16 North and South Island destinations will provide the opportunity to have a holiday,” Mr Parton says.
Mr Parton says Air New Zealand has a long history of leading the market with free airfares.
“Five years ago Air New Zealand’s hugely popular Mother’s Day sale offered a free seat with every seat purchased. We’ve also shared our generosity with our Australian cousins via our 2009 Big Shout promotion which saw Air New Zealand give away more than $2 million in free domestic travel by providing a free one-way New Zealand domestic flight with every one-way direct trans-Tasman flight purchased. And just last year our Air New Zealand cabin crew surprised diners in a Melbourne restaurant by gifting them free flights to New Zealand.”
Mr Parton says Air New Zealand has a significant volume of upcoming promotional activity that will continue to surprise and delight customers around the nation.
“Over the coming 12 months, Air New Zealand will have more than 2 million airfares available for less than $100. Kiwis can expect to be amazed by how cheaply they can connect with family, friends or business contacts, especially between the main centres where we have significant flight frequency.”
