Emirates First Class to New Zealand for 54,000 Qantas Points

Emirates flies A380s between Australia and New Zealand on the Sydney-Christchurch route. On Emirates’ A380s, each First class passenger enjoys a private suite with sliding doors, as well as access to on-board showers and Emirates’ famous in-flight bar! Naturally, you’ll also be pampered with top-quality champagne and First class dining on board.

As one of Qantas’ many partner airlines, Qantas points can be redeemed for Emirates flights. And at just 54,000 points to experience one of the world’s best First class products, this redemption is an absolute bargain!

Finding an award seat across the ditch on Emirates is rarely a problem. There are plenty of First class award seats available most days.

If you only want to fly First class in one direction, we recommend flying from New Zealand to Australia. The flight is approximately 30 minutes longer in this direction, giving you more time to enjoy the flight. Emirates flights also depart from New Zealand in the evening, while services in the opposite direction leave early in the morning.
