Flights to Auckland from €543 / £530 & more - round-trip incl. taxes *UPDATE*

British Airways is offering very cheap flights to Auckland New Zealand for only 543 Euro - round trip incl. all taxes and baggage fees.

The fare is valid for travel between April and June 2013. All flights have stopovers in London, Singapore or Hong Kong and Sydney. Please pay attention, some flights include airport changes (Gatwick to Heathrow) don't book this flights. You'll fly with really good airlines: Cathay Pacific Airways, Qantas and British Airways.

The cheapest flights are available for departures from Barcelona with a return also to Barcelona. But you can book this fare also as a Open-Jaw flight and return to other European airports.


  • Barcelona - Auckland - Barcelona (eg. 8 - 22/5/2013) for 543 Euro
  • Barcelona - Auckland - Rome (eg. 4 - 29/5/2013) for 587 Euro
  • Barcelona - Auckland - London Heathrow ( eg. 4 - 29/5/2013) for 530 GBP
  • and more

This trick should work with every European British Airways airport (Amsterdam, Brussels,Vienna, Frankfurt, Geneva, Zurich, Paris, Manchester, Venice, Milan and so on). If you have found new routings and dates, please share them with us in the comments or on Facebook.

Update: offers loads of different campers for  2 – 6 people. If you travel with 4 person I'd recommend the Apollo Euro Camper for only 498 Euro for 21 days. With this camper you can easily explore the fascinating landscapes of New Zealands North Island and don’t have to think about a bed for the night.

    clara says:

    This may be a stupid question but can I book the Barcelona flights and just leave out the Barcelona to London leg of the journey i.e. start out in London anyway? Seems to be much cheaper to book it with the Barcelona route but I don't need it!

      I don't think so if you have some Avios, try to find a RFS on BA from london to BCN for after the last leg of the journey

    To all who booked: I checked my flight status on The flight part AKL-HKG for my return flight is missing. Has somebody else the same problem?

    • chris_14305

      chris_14305 says:

      Same problem here. I called BA and they corrected this, flight leg appeared again on checkmytrip. However, I can't find the booking on CX-webpage. (can find it on QF-website). My rough guess is: CX-leg (AKL-HKG) hasn't been charged originally, and that is why the fare is so cheap. I'm preparing for getting charged the normal AKL-HKG fare (around 560 €; relatively stable, also one day in advance) at Auckland Airport. Any news on your story in the meantime? Rgds

      • harald

        harald says:

        The story was very complicated. Cathay changed flight time for the segment AKL-HKG from 13:20 to 13:25. Usually that won't be trouble, but since the segment was not natively booked in Amadeus GDS, the flight change had to be confirmed via the other GDS. Since this last mentioned GDS is rarely used (by expedia), they didn't know how to confirm the flight change and had to contact the airline. This took expedia some time to get someone from the airline on the phone. As long as the segment had not been confirmed, we weren't able to see the segment via checkmytrip. Expedia told me, that they weren't told about the flight change. BA wasn't informed either.

        Another interesting thing happened: on the BA website the segment HKG-LHR disappeared. It reappeared after the segment AKL-HKG had been confirmed. Via checkmytrip the segment HKG-LHR did always show the status confirmed. Expedia guessed that it might be a "married segment" and that may be the cause for the disappearance in the past.

        Since every leg is confirmed and shown via checkmytrip and the BA website there is no need to worry at the moment.
