Air New Zealand’s Grabaseat deals were a hit on Friday, breaking the airline’s previous records around the number of tickets sold per hour and per minute.
Grabaseat released 1000 domestic flights at just $19 and unmissable international deals including some of its lowest-ever Australia fares at 9am on Friday morning.
More than 100 individual tickets per minute were transacted in the first hour of the sale, with sales peaking in the sixth minute at 120 tickets per minute.
The sale includes $19 one-way flights to all Air New Zealand’s 20 domestic destinations, plus thousands more across the country from $39.
Some of the airline’s sharpest fares seen to Australia are up for grabs with one-way seats from Auckland to Sydney and Christchurch to Brisbane from $99. Flights to Gold Coast and Melbourne are available from $119, to Adelaide from $199 and Perth from $299 one-way.
"Whether you’re looking for an Aussie break, a relaxing Waikiki getaway, or are planning a catch up with friends and family across New Zealand, this is your chance to fly at a fantastic price," says Air New Zealand chief revenue officer Cam Wallace.
