Calgary to Auckland, New Zealand - $632 CAD roundtrip including taxes


A number of booking sites are showing flights from Calgary to Auckland with Air New Zealand for as low as $632 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

It's likely a mistake fare, so keep the expectations low if you book it, and wait at least 48 hours for the dust to settle, and it becomes clear that your booking is confirmed by the airline.

Availability for travel

June and July 2016

How to find and book these flights

1. Try one of the following Kayak searches:

June 19 to July 14 or 17

June 23 or 24 to July 14 or 17

June 25 to July 19

2. Click through from Kayak to whichever
booking site is showing the cheap price.

So far I've seen them on Travelocity, Expedia, CheapoAir, and FlightHub.

Long trips - from $598 CAD roundtrip including taxes

If you're up for taking a really long trip to New Zealand, there also seems to be flights from June to, say, November 2016 available for $598 CAD roundtrip including taxes.


1. Try this Kayak search

June 12, 14, 15, 17, or 18 to November 19 or 20

2. On the Kayak search result, click on the orange 'Select' button and select Expedia as the booking site. It won't work if you click through to the Air New Zealand site.

Click through to Expedia.

It doesn't have to be November that you return though. When testing it out, you can try changing the return date on Kayak to a date in August, September, October, November, or December 2016, or January, February, March, or April 2017, and you still have a good chance of finding flights for $599 to $632 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

Keep the dates flexible on Kayak when searching. And remember to click through to Expedia, not Air New Zealand, to find this price.

I've also seen similar results when changing the departure date from June 15 to...

May 12, 13, 15, 17, 18, 19, or 20
May 22, 24, 25, 27, or 29
June 2 or 3
June 5, 7, 8, 9, or 10
June 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, or 26

You can also find flights from Calgary to Sydney (SYD) or Melbourne (MEL), or the Gold Coast (OOL) or Brisbane, Australia in the $900s CAD roundtrip using this same method. It's nowhere near as crazy as the prices to New Zealand, but still cheaper than usual.

For the flights to Australia, in some cases it looks to be possible to book them by going directly from Kayak to the Air New Zealand website.

Other cities in New Zealand: Calgary to Christchurch (CHC), Wellington (WLG) , or Queenstown (ZQN) are available for $711 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

Try substituting these cities on the Kayak searches above. Click through from Kayak to Expedia.

Virtually all destinations in New Zealand seem to be available for this price. Even Nelson (NSN).

    Crazy deal but keep in mind you'll be going to NZ in the dead of winter there. They don't have central heating in a lot of places so it's likely to be pretty chilly indoors, even if the outside temperature is mild by Canadian standards.
