Those in long-term relationships, this is your sign. Surprise your boyfriend or girlfriend (or tag them and get them to ‘surprise’ you) hopefully you don’t end up as part of the next ‘couch guy’ TikTok saga… only one way to find out though.
Iain Walker, Air New Zealand’s Domestic General Manager, encourages y’all to embrace your spontaneous side adding that he reckons the tickets are going to be here then gone, so...
“This is your chance to explore a new part of your own backyard,” he said. “It’s the perfect time to embrace those impulsive travel thoughts and book a late-minute wintery South Island escape, explore our biggest cities, or even head to some of our best wineries in Marlborough or Hawke’s Bay.”
“The low fare frenzy features great prices across New Zealand. We anticipate tickets will fly out the door and encourage customers to jump on board early if they don’t want to miss out.”
If you’re 50/50, maybe the fact that new in-flight snacks, such as hangi pies and/or Maori fry bread, are potentially on the way will persuade you.
