Flight to and from New Zealand

How long is a flight to New Zealand?

Air New Zealand, Hobbit style

A flight to New Zealand is long – very long! Being situated in the far south of the Southern Hemisphere, it is safe to say that New Zealand is extremely far away from most countries. It is isolated in the Pacific Ocean with only Australia and some Pacific Islands relatively nearby. New Zealand is also one of the closest countries (the other is Argentina) to Antarctica. This is great for working holidaymakers wanting to get as far away from home as possible!

Check the table below to see how long the average flight time is to get from home to New Zealand. We have also listed the time difference between your country and New Zealand.
