Sun, sea and sand

If you're thinking beaches, bays and islands for your next holiday, we can fly you to ocean-scented bliss.

There comes a time in everyone's year when a beach break makes more sense than any other sort of holiday. Maybe it's chilly and you desperately need to feel the kiss of the sun.

Maybe you've been working so hard that collapsing on a deck chair is the only logical solution. Or it could be that the siren call of a warm tropical ocean full of coloured fish is just too loud to resist.

Air New Zealand planes have been flying to the southern hemisphere's most beautiful beach destinations since our first Catalina flying boat touched down gently in Aitutaki lagoon in 1951. Today our beach repertoire covers the Pacific Islands, Australia, Asia and the USA.

Close your eyes and imagine the perfect beach, then open them again and start booking.
