The fare levels vary according to four domestic and four international zones, costing anywhere from NZ$99 to NZ$378 one way for a domestic flight within New Zealand or NZ$231 to NZ$855 one way for flights between Australia and New Zealand or to the Pacific islands.

Zone 1 flights within the Pacific islands include Auckland-Norfolk Island and Apia-Tonga, both costing NZ$231/378 supersaver/standard per hop. Within Zone 2 it costs NZ$399/483 to fly from Auckland to Fiji, Tonga, Noumea, or Port Vila. Zone 3 includes Auckland to Tahiti, Rarotonga, or Apia at NZ$557/672 per flight.

You must have arrived on Air New Zealand or another Star Alliance carrier. All fares are quoted here in New Zealand dollars and airport taxes and security levies are not included.

The South Pacific Airpass is an ideal way to add an extra destination or two to a trip. For example, travelers planning a trip to Australia or New Zealand can use it to visit the Pacific islands. Those already stopping on an island can use it to visit other islands and/or Australia/New Zealand.

The class of service determines the exact supersaver/standard fare, based on availability. The less expensive "supersaver" (or T Class) seats sell out first, then bookings must be at the slightly higher "standard" (or H Class) rates.
