The Dates

This is wide open from December 2016 into April of 2017, in the height of the season in the Southern Hemisphere! You can book the December 3rd inaugural of the longest flight in the world Doha to Auckland, which may even score you some cool swag! Book HERE.

Update: Qatar have seemingly delayed the launch of the direct flight from Doha to Auckland until Feb 01. Therefore they are not accepting booking before that date, leaving Feb 01 to April as the new date range available to book. If you already have a booking for the earlier dates you’ll be offered to route through Australia or get a full refund.
