In March 2016, Jetstar commenced non-stop services from Auckland to Rarotonga.
Jetstar operate three days-a-week on a year-round basis, departing Auckland at 7.40pm on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday, arriving in Rarotonga at 12.40am the same day. Return flights depart Rarotonga at 1.40am the same day, arriving in Auckland at 5.15am the following day. (These times are based on NZ daylight saving time).
The Jetstar services add to the existing scheduled non-stop services from Auckland to Rarotonga operated by Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia.
Jetstar’s Head of New Zealand, Grant Kerr, said: “Whenever Jetstar enters a market, our low fares help to grow that market…we expect our flights to Rarotonga will significantly lift passenger numbers, which is great news for Cook Islands tourism.”
