From 15 December 2015 Air New Zealand will begin operating up to five return services a week Tuesday through Friday and on Sundays using its newly refurbished Boeing 777-200 aircraft.

The new Auckland - Houston service is the airline’s fifth North American route and will be the fastest way for Kiwis to get to East Coast and Midwest destinations including New York and Chicago. As a special introductory offer the airline is also offering one-way fares to New York from $999 and Chicago from just $989.

Customers can also snap up one-way fares to Austin for $899, New Orleans and Nashville for $989 and Memphis, Orlando and Miami for just $999.

Air New Zealand’s Chief Sales and Commercial Officer Cam Wallace says the airline is excited to offer customers direct and convenient access to the heart of southern USA.

"As America’s fourth-largest city Houston has a lot to offer travellers keen to shop, dine and explore local highlights such as NASA’s Johnson Space Center and Mission Control. It’s also the perfect stepping off point for onward travel to popular destinations including Nashville, New Orleans and Miami.

"Our newly refitted Boeing 777-200 aircraft will operate the route offering customers our award winning on board experience including lie flat Business Premier beds, comfortable new Premium Economy seats and our popular Economy Skycouch."

Air New Zealand’s special introductory one-way fares are available now through until 8 June 2015. See for more details.
