Getting to New Zealand is closer than you think. The average flight time is 13 hours, about the same time it takes to get to Europe from the West Coast. Hop on a plane around 9:30pm, have dinner, some New Zealand wine, and watch a movie before you fall asleep. Wake up to the smell of breakfast being served, and you’re here in New Zealand!
