New Zealand: €611 / £523 China Eastern Flights From London (Incl. 2×23 Kg Checked Luggage)

Auckland Newzeeland

SkyTeam member China Eastern Airlines is offering incredible cheap flights from London to Auckland. Tickets for a roundtrip are starting as low as £523 (~€612). A very good price to get to the other end of the world! You’ll have long layovers in Shanghai, but they’re during the day, they give you some time to stretch your legs on this long trip, and you can even explore Shanghai without needing a visa. Departures are available from May to June.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Kayak with your selected flight dates.

From London, you’ll travel to Shanghai on a China Eastern Boeing 777 with a 3-4-3 configuration. Then, after a long layover, you’ll board your flight to Auckland on a China Eastern Airbus A350 with a 3-3-3 configuration. Fortunately, the long layover is during the daytime, so you can use this opportunity to explore Shanghai without needing a visa or a hotel.

The regulations for checked luggage are very generous. China Eastern allows you to bring two pieces of luggage (each weighing up to 23 kg).

Search & Book

This deal will expire on April 15, 2024. A minimum stay of six days and a maximum stay of three months applies. Available dates are between May and June.

You can find suitable dates using our calendar above or with the help of Google Flights. We recommend booking directly on China Eastern’s website, but you can find cheaper prices with Kayak. However, booking on OTAs has its downsides.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.


The airline will issue all tickets in booking class Z. Here’s what a trip from London to Auckland could earn you on select programs:

  • 6,942 Miles on Aeromexico Club Premier
  • 5,784 RDM + 1,156 MQD on Delta SkyMiles

Information & Tips for Auckland

Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand with a population of approximately 1.5 million and a wide range of tourist attractions and activities for visitors. The city is also an excellent starting point to explore the rest of New Zealand. Auckland is connected to Southeast Asia and Asia pretty well, even non-stop flights to the USA are available. As of now, you’ll have to switch planes at least once when flying to New Zealand from Europe. But this may change since long-range flights are hitting new limits all the time

The Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Auckland is between March and May and September and November. These are the times when you’ll find comparatively few tourists and can enjoy sunny days and moderate temperatures.
