To ensure Wellington fans don't miss out on the rescheduled game, Air New Zealand is offering rugby goers return flights to Auckland to watch the All Blacks take on the Wallabies for $199. New Zealand Rugby is also providing complimentary match tickets with every fare sold.
Air New Zealand Chief Customer and Sales Officer Leanne Geraghty says it's fantastic to add an extra 500 seats over the weekend to bring people to the match.

NZ Rugby CEO Mark Robinson says he is thrilled to be able to go some way in softening the blow for Wellington fans who missed out on an All Blacks test at home.
"To be able to partner with our friends at Air New Zealand to make it that little bit easier for Wellingtonians to get to Eden Park is fantastic – we hope to see as many of them at the match this weekend as possible."
