Edmonton to Sydney, Australia or Auckland, New Zealand - $929 to $991 CAD roundtrip including taxes


Air New Zealand is showing flights from Edmonton to Sydney, Australia or Auckland, New Zealand for $928 to $991 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

This is about 40% below the typical best roundtrip prices from Edmonton to either country.

It's pretty common for these flights to bottom out in the $1600s roundtrip. So if you've been waiting for a flight to either country, today would be a very good day to strike.

Flights in the low $1000s between February 2017 and May 2017.

Remember that Australia and New Zealand's seasons are reversed from ours.

    Hi Chris - I just booked one (thank you)! I'm noticing that Air New Zealand isn't offering the same fare deal, and expedia is telling me it will take up to 24 hours to confirm the fare with them... fingers crossed :)

    Hi Chris, thanks for the alert. No doubt it's a great deal! I am interested in booking to Melbourne Australia to travel in January 2017. The fares indicated are to Sydney. Any chance of changing the destination to Melbourne instead of Sydney?
    My email address is :[email protected]

    Hi Anonymous, I've added some info about fares from Edmonton to Melbourne. There does seem to be some available, although seemingly less dates in the $900s than to Sydney.
