Please note some flights from Dunedin and Queenstown are seasonal. Locally in New Zealand, the two main airlines are Air New Zealand and Jetstar. There are a handful of smaller airlines that only fly one or two routes or only service smaller towns. Air New Zealand has by far the most comprehensive route network and Jetstar only operates to the main cities. Most flights around New Zealand are less than an hour and a half long and as such, no refreshments other than tea, coffee and water are offered although you can buy food and alcoholic drinks on board selected flights.
