Some multistop itinerary options:
- Add stopovers - travel to one main destination with stopovers on the way there and/or on return
- One way with stopover - travel to your chosen destination with a stopover on the way
- Split your flights on return (open jaw) - depart from Auckland, fly to Los Angeles, make your own way to San Francisco and return to Auckland
With two ways of searching and creating your itinerary, the choice is yours as to how to start building your international multistop trip.
Our Guided search allows you to book up to 4 legs and assists you in the process to pick valid combinations based on the routes and fares available. If you are a multistop first timer wanting to know your stopover options, then this tool is for you. View sample itineraries.
Build your own trip is for you, if you are a frequent traveller and know what routes Air New Zealand and our partner airlines fly and valid stop overs. You can put in any combination of destinations and stop overs, so knowledge of our fares and routes will help to create a successful itinerary. We recommend no more than 4-5 destinations – too many combinations may not return any results.
