Auckland is well served by a number of airlines, with a smaller number arriving into Christchurch, the principal city in the South Island.
If you are travelling from Europe, you may wish to consider a Star Alliance Round the World fare.  The benefits of this are:

  • the ability to combine a set number of stopovers for the cost of your ticket
  • the use of any one or combination of the Star Alliance partners
  • you can build an itinerary that suits, combining places of interest, or business on the way.
