As part of the airline's Black Friday flight specials, tickets will cost just over $2 (£1) plus taxes return, the airline said on its UK site. 

The total cost will be around NZ$355 (£178).

They are available for purchase from 29 November to 3 December. 

Air New Zealand says tickets are on a first come, first served basis as there are only 100 available to buy.

The airline announced last month that it is axing its London route via Los Angeles.

It first flew the route in 1982, but said competition made the service unsustainable.

The service will end in October 2020.
