IN BRIEF | Heading to New Zealand? Emirates' new Business/First combination fare package is worth checking out.
The deal sees passengers travel in Emirates' A380 business class from Australia to Auckland, and luxe it up on the return leg in Emirates' private first class suites.
And of course, you can enjoy the delights of the on-board bar both ways.
Business/First combination fares to Auckland start from $1,658 return from Melbourne, $1,677 from Sydney and $1,680 from Brisbane (there are daily flights on each of these routes).
Sydney-siders can also take advantage of a similar combo deal to Christchurch for $1,674 return.
The combo fares also include a generous 40kg of checked baggage for each passenger. But you'll need to be quick: all bookings have to be completed by November 30, with travel until January 31, 2012.
For more information contact Emirates on 1300 303 777 or head to www.emirates.com/au.
