Air New Zealand safety video features the Bay of Islands

CIMG6053.JPG   Air New Zealand has not only won the 'Airline of the year' award for the last 4 years it has become renowned for its unique, entertaining and enjoyable safety videos.  Usually a boring but essential part of any flight but now people travel Air New Zealand just to see what safety video will be shown.

Now there’s a new safety video filmed in and featuring so many faces from the Bay of Islands.  Launched at a Premier Screening in Kerikeri thus emphasising the importance of the town within the Bay area.

Talking about fabulous backyards - Air New Zealand have just shown the world what a great location the Bay of Islands is and a 'must include' for any vacation to New Zealand.  You must check it out.   Air New Zealand / Bay of Islands safety video

Our beaches, forests and history are on display and so is the fact that the Bay of Islands is just part of Northland for the beautiful Hokianga also gets in on the act.

The Air New Zealand in-flight safety videos have previously featured 'The Hobbit' and 'Lord of the Rings' phenomenon, Hollywood, The All-Blacks, Bear Grylls and the Boy Scouts, The Golden Girls, and even naked (but with uniforms painted on) flight crew.  But this is the first time a tourist area of New Zealand has been featured and we in Northland are so stoked they chose the little bit at the top of the country north of Auckland that so many visitors miss out.

From Auckland you can fly into Kerikeri/Bay of Islands airport on just a short 45-minute Air New Zealand flight.  88 Lodge is just 5 minutes drive from this airport thus making us so convenient for arriving by plane and then being perfectly located to get the very best from the Bay of Islands and all of Northland. Car Hire is available at the airport and is essential for getting around to all the fabulous things to do and places to see.  There is no public transport in Northland, but there are great tours on sea and land which we can book for you.


It's not many who receive ‘HALL OF FAME’ status. This makes us a B&B not to be missed
