Calgary to Sydney, Australia or Auckland, New Zealand - $928 to $991 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Australia

Air New Zealand is showing flights from Calgary to Sydney, Australia or Auckland, New Zealand for $928 to $991 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

This is about 40% below the typical best roundtrip prices from Calgary to either country.

It's pretty common for these flights to bottom out in the $1600s roundtrip. So if you've been waiting for a flight to either country, today would be a very good day to strike.

Availability for travel

Flights under $1000 roundtrip from August 2016 to January 2017.
Flights in the low $1000s between February 2017 and May 2017.

Remember that Australia and New Zealand's seasons are reversed from ours.

August is winter.
September/October/November is spring
December/January/February is summer
March/April/May is fall.
