The Herald reports:
A domestic air fare war is underway, after Qantas low-cost carrier announced it would launch new routes to regional New Zealand.
Jetstar is using $9 fares to promote the unveiling of Nelson, Napier, New Plymouth and Palmerston North to its regional network. Air NZ responded immediately, matching the $9 fares on its ‘grabaseat’ website.
I love competition.
It now costs more to park at airports than to fly out from it!
Obviously they won’t last for ever, but price competition will make them a lot cheaper than they have been.
