Travel with Air New Zealand.
We bought our air fare via Singapore Airline, but they co-share with Air New Zealand. It’s felt reasonable for me since I generally prefer direct flight (you can take SQ plane if you pick the option of transit in Sydney) and this is the best flight to Auckland.
We bought our multi-cities ticket Singapore > Auckland + Christchurch > Singapore at about SGD1,400. It’s pretty pricey for a low peak season but this is the best we fare! Any day earlier or later cost near SGD1,800. I know there’s many SQ promotion going around but, as we doing multi-cities and we don’t want to waste any time taking domestic flight back to Auckland so we go ahead with doing multi-cities ticket.
I thought it’s good to experience different airline too. NZ’s safety precaution VCR is pretty interesting; you should pay attention to it if you are taking them next time.
