Air New Zealand has lowered fares to some Pacific Island destinations for flights from May the 20th.

The new so-called Pacific Express fares are available for trips between New Zealand and Nuku'alofa, Apia, Nadi and Rarotonga.

The lowest of the new one-way fares is 199 New Zealand dollars for an Auckland to Nuku'alofa flight excluding taxes and levies.

Air New Zealand's best one-way fare to Fiji will be 229 dollars and to Samoa and Rarotonga 289 dollars.

The lowest fares are not available on all flights and the Pacific Express fares won't be offered on flights to New Caledonia and Tahiti.
