New Zealand via Los Angeles

With our flagship route to New Zealand, you’ll enjoy our award-winning service all the way from London Heathrow through to Auckland, with just a pause for breath in LA.

Our recently refurbished aircraft means even better Economy and Premium Economy cabins and a quick two-hour transit before you’re bound for New Zealand. You even stay on the same plane, so there’s no need to worry about your luggage.

If you travel in Business Premier™, you’ll have access to Singapore Airlines’ SilverKris Lounge at London Heathrow. Our convenient afternoon departure also means you’ll have some early evening time in LAX to enjoy our famous hospitality and open-air terrace at the Star Alliance lounge.

If you do fancy some time in the City of Angels - maybe for some star-spotting, retail therapy or time at the beach - you can take advantage of the free stopover included in all of our routes to New Zealand.

New Zealand via Singapore

If you’re looking for the fastest way to Middle-earth, then our Singapore route is your answer.

Thanks to our partnership with Singapore Airlines, you can pick up flights to New Zealand via Singapore from both London Heathrow and Manchester airports. Check in for these flights at the Singapore Airlines desk at the airport. They’ll take you to Singapore for a short layover at Changi Airport. From there, we’ll take you to Auckland on our sought-after 787-9 Dreamliner. If you’re flying with Singapore Airlines, you can also choose to fly into Wellington or Christchurch as well.

When flying in Business Premier™, you can relax in Singapore Airlines’ lounge at London Heathrow and the SATS lounge at Changi.

If your transit time allows you a little more time to explore Singapore’s Changi Airport, then you’re in for a treat. There’s a pool on the roof, a high-tech entertainment deck and a movie theatre. If that’s not enough, you could always check out the butterfly garden, Koi pond or 12-metre high slide.

One of the perks of flying with us is that all our stopovers are included for free. Make the most of a stopover in Singapore by exploring the Garden City’s green spaces, buzzing market and impossibly tasty street food before continuing your onward journey to New Zealand. Check out our 24 hour guide to Singapore.

Either way, you’re in for a treat.


Free stopovers available

Why just transit, when we offer free stopovers at each of these destinations.

San Francisco is dreamy, Singapore is stunning and Vancouver is vantastic. How about a Shanghai surprise, Hong Kong express, or Tokyo drift? And if you want to see our friendly faces all the way through to Auckland, you can also take some time out in LA. There’s plenty of choice on round the world tickets too.
