Early bird season has officially begun, with record-low Emirates fares to Europe.

House of Travel has released return economy airfares to five European destinations from just $1499 per person aboard Emirates.

There are five destinations to choose from: Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, and Norway.

"Competitive pricing from carriers such as Emirates is fantastic news for Kiwis looking at long-haul travel for next year," said House of Travel commercial director Brent Thomas.

"A substantial influx of new carriers, routes and increased capacity ex-New Zealand, is fuelling competition and increasing affordability and accessibility."

Statistics New Zealand figures show the number of Kiwis travelling to Europe increased 13 percent in the last year.

"New Zealanders prefer to travel with airlines they know and trust and we expect this deal with Emirates, who are well-regarded for quality service, will sell out fast," added Mr Thomas.

Travellers who book the deal can depart from Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch and travel to Hamburg, Lyon, Brussels, Bologna and Oslo.

Travel is valid between January 16 and March 28, 2018, and April 16 to June 13, 2018. The sale ends September 27, 2017, or until sold out.
