Jetstar has released hundreds of $15 airfares on all of its routes out of Auckland, including Queenstown, as part of a Halloween promotion.

With travel into and out of New Zealand's largest city currently on hold, the airfares are for travel dates in February through to April next year.

Air New Zealand is also offering reduced airfares starting at around $50 on flights operating from January through to April 2022.

While Air NZ's fares are more expensive, there's a lot more of them.

Jetstar has limited its $15 fares to 500 sales, while Air New Zealand has thousands of $50 fares available across its network.

As of Friday morning, Grabaseat had more than 5990 seats on the Auckland - Wellington service for sale at $50, and almost as many on routes to Christchurch and Queenstown.
