New Zealand travel times and distances, attractions, and recommendations for tourists.
Generally, the cheapest time to fly to New Zealand is during New Zealand's summer. It is a popular place to visit during winter, as the snow sports are excellent, but the climate is much more pleasant during summer, and the tourist operators try to encourage visitors during the less well-patronised summer months.
The shortest flight duration from Auckland to Sydney 3 hours 25 mins. This does depend, however, on wind speeds and the speed of the aircraft. For this reason, flight times vary between 3.25 hours and 4 hours.

Hey I'm from New Zealand, now living in the USA. My fiance and I have done NUMEROUS trips back and forth from NZ to USA. (Im not sure if that's where you are?). Anyway, the cheapest times of the year seem to be around March?April, and they have specials about August/September.... I'm planning on a trip around dec/Jan this year, but it looks like flights will be very very expensive. AirNZ has excellent deals direct…
In US, I was able to contact Air New Zealand at 800-262-1234. When I provided the 9-digit code (not the actual ticket number) which appeared on my Air NZ boarding pass stub, the operator was able to provide me with the actual 13-digit ticket number for each segment of my flight. For example, this 13-digit ticket number is the piece of information I needed to claim missing United Airlines frequent flier program credit for several…

With tourism comes more tourism. Word of mouth is the strongest form of marketing. the more tourists that have come, the more tourists that will come, the more money that will be made, (by the natives) the more activities that will be offered, (by the natives for the tourists) the more jobs that will be created, (for the natives) the more industries will grow, the more countries will offer, (by the natives for the tourists)…
The South Island is the best, I think, particularly the Central Otago region and the west coast fjiordland. However, you can't go wrong with the north as there is heaps to do and you'll probably find something you'll enjoy. I'd say the north in summer for touristy type stuff and South Island in winter for cool weather and snowboardig the scenery is ace. Also the history on the North Island is more easily found and…

New Zealand certainly isn't 17 hours behind Washington (State or D.C.). Assuming your question is hypothetical ("if" New Zealand is 17 hours behind "Washington"), leaving on 9:00, 5th March on an 18 hour trip, you would arrive in New Zealand at 10:00 the same day (local time)/3:00 "Washington" time. Switching to reality, on 5th March (when the US does not yet have "Daylight Saving", and New Zealand does), Washington D.C.'s -5 UTC/Washington's -8 UTC and…
