Love to fly Air NZ

Dec 22, 2019

Thank you quantas Highly recommend your airline and will continue to fly with you . I flew virgin last week and you showed me what a proper flight with service looks like . Thank you again .

Aug 30, 2019

Would have given better rating but for poor service at baggage check in and no signage of flight number and details at gate 8 till 11:20- left many of us wondering whether it was right gate. Wotif was good to let us know the delay. It took nearly half hour there after for local announcement.

Dec 2, 2018

Delayed flight out of NZ missing my connection lots of after effects plus $ 150 cost in LAX.

I left my jacket on the plane. It did take awhile but it was returned to me and for that I am really grateful. Thank you

FAQs about flights from to

How long is the flight from Sydney Airport to Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.)?

Travelling from Sydney, NSW Airport (SYD-Kingsford Smith Intl.) to Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.)? Then you'll have roughly 4 hours and 9 minutes to while away in the air. Pack your carry-on bag with things to entertain yourself, as well as a soft neck pillow, and the time will fly by.

What airlines fly direct from Sydney Airport to Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.)?

Skip the drama of racing to make a connecting flight when jetting from Sydney to Auckland. A range of airlines have nonstop flights. Suss out Qantas and Air New Zealand to get you started.

How many flights are there from Sydney Airport to Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.)?

Can you hear that? It's the sweet-as sound of your plane hoofing it to Auckland. All you have to do is choose a seat on one of the 23 daily flights from Sydney, NSW Airport (SYD-Kingsford Smith Intl.) to Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.).

Sydney Airport to Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Drink plenty of H2O — this is the simplest way to escape that sluggish feeling following your flight.
  • Choose your seat as soon as possible. The good seats are usually snapped up early, so don't leave your decision till the last minute.
  • We're not sure why, but there's something about flying that makes lollies, chips and chocolate bars seem perfectly normal to eat by the bucket load. If airline food isn't your cup of tea, take control and pack a picnic of your own. Calories don't count when you're flying, right?
  • Do all those things you've been hankering to do for ages but have been too busy. Things like starting a journal, finally organising the photos on your phone or listening to a podcast. You'll have heaps of time during your flight.
  • A proper travel pillow will make all the difference to how much sleep you manage to rack up while in flight. Check online for popular designs so that you can begin your holiday feeling relaxed and refreshed.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • Dress like an onion. No idea what that means? Layers. And plenty of them. That way you’ll be prepared for any temperature variations on board as well as when you reach your destination.
  • Contemplate slipping on (OK, wrestling into) some compression socks during longer flights. These can make your time on board more comfy and can reduce the risk of the dangerous condition called deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Q: Can you take food on international flights?
  • Bringing your own private picnic on your flight is a great idea. Be sure to properly package your favourite foods so they don't make a mess through your carry-on or through security.
