Air NZ offers $5 flights

AIR New Zealand are offering $5 fares tomorrow to mark the 60th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hillary's conquest of Everest.

The 500 fares to a variety of New Zealand destinations will be offered on the Grabaseat website from 9am.

Grabaseat manager Duane Perrott said May 29 is a big day in New Zealand's history and it was fitting to offer the $5 airfares with Sir Ed gracing the $5 note.

"Customers keen for a cheap fare will need to keep an eye on the Grabaseat website throughout the day as new routes are added,'' he said.

"Unlike Sir Edmond Hillary's lengthy climb of Everest these fares will be snapped up within minutes,'' Mr Perrott said.
