Air New Zealand is offering a 72-hour fare sale of $200 off round-trip travel between the US and New Zealand, Australia, London, and the Cook Islands. If you book by 11:59 pm PT on Thursday, April 2, you can save by using promo code 75TH200.

This promotion is valid for travel between April 2 and November 30, 2015, and can be used in all fare classes. Naturally the percentage discount is greater in economy, but you get the same total savings in premium economy, business, or first class as well. The $200 savings only applies to the base fare, and not to fuel surcharges, taxes, or other fees.

There are some great fares available to New Zealand, but they won’t last long.

Thanks to the promo, Air New Zealand is advertising fares as low as $875 round-trip from the US to New Zealand, and it does seem like plenty of fares are available at that price. I used the promo code to pull up this search on for flights from Los Angeles to Auckland:

Fares from Los Angeles to Auckland, New Zealand for $875 round-trip in economy.

I found flights from San Francisco starting at $958, Seattle at $1,090, and fares from New York and Chicago at $1,190 round-trip in economy. Those fares aren’t mind-blowing, but they’re pretty good deals. Delta, for example, is charging $1,342 for service between Los Angeles and Auckland (on Virgin Australia) on the same dates; United is charging $1,297, and American is charging $1,621. So clearly, you can save a lot by taking advantage of this promotion.

If you’re already planning paid travel to New Zealand, Australia, or the Cook Islands, you should definitely look into these fares. If you’re able to book, please share your triumphs in the comments below!
