This is a great way of combining New Zealand and the capital of Spain, Madrid and all for only 618EUR return! Flights at this time to New Zealand will cost a minimum of 1000EUR, so its a great deal! There are many things to do in Auckland, such as Sky Tower, the Bay of Islands and you can even visit Hobbiton, from the Lord of the Rings films, as a day trip from Auckland!
This deal is possible by combining Ryanair and China Southern Airlines. The flights are from Dublin to Madrid on the 22nd May with Ryanair, spending the day in Madrid and then flying with 4 star China Southern Airlines via Shanghai. The return flight would be leaving Auckland on the 8th June and returning to Madrid on the 9th June. Then staying two nights in Madrid and returning to Dublin on the 11th June. Although this routing may not be everyone’s cup of tea as it is nearly half the cost of flights at this time it is worth sharing!
We would highly recommend you take the early morning flight with Ryanair from Dublin as this is a separate ticket to the China Southern flight. Should you miss that flight your tickets to New Zealand are gone!
