Air New Zealand unwraps New York flights for Christmas 2020

For people dreaming of spending Christmas in New York, Air New Zealand's announcement may make that dream a little more likely.

The airline has recently announced 2020 holiday season bookings for its non-stop Auckland-New York flights are now open.

The New York route kicks off on October 29 and will be the first non-stop link between Australasia and New York. Fares are available 350 days in advance and customers can now book flights between Auckland and New York through to January 4, 2021.

Air New Zealand chief revenue officer Cam Wallace says New York is fantastic at any time of the year, but with its iconic festive sights and shopping, the city sparkles at Christmas.

“Ice skating in Central Park, the Rockefeller Christmas tree, window displays on 5th Avenue – New York at Christmas is a bucket-list experience for many and is now just one flight away.


“Our non-stop flight will make it easier than ever for Kiwis and Australians to swap a sunny Christmas for New York’s winter wonderland, and likewise, we expect many Americans to take advantage of our new flight to enjoy a relaxed, summer Christmas down under.”

Air New Zealand will operate three return services a week between Auckland and Newark Liberty International Airport using its latest configuration Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner from October 29. Flight time is expected to be 15 hours 40 minutes northbound and 17 hours 40 minutes southbound.
