(CNN) — Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, all of travel seems like a big question mark. So, one airline argues, why not embrace that question mark?
The packages, which begin at $599 AUD ($422 USD), allow travelers to choose from three tiers — Great, Deluxe or Luxury. They will also select the dates they wish to travel and one place they are not interested in going.
The accommodations will be at an Accor Hotel and car hires by Avis, as both brands are partners with Air New Zealand.
According to the New Zealand Ministry of Health, the country has had 1,531 confirmed coronavirus cases within its borders, and just 25 deaths.
While the country’s borders remain closed to nearly all visitors, the most effective way to stimulate the tourism sector is by encouraging locals to travel domestically.
Among TIA’s proposals was a suggestion that the government give every New Zealander a $200 “credit card” to use at tourism-related businesses like hotels and attractions.
