“By teaming with Air New Zealand, our customers and fans of ‘The Hobbit’, get to experience New Zealand’s awe-inspiring countryside and attractions that made this film come to life,” said Adam Cooper, Senior VP, STA Travel North America

STA Travel and Air New Zealand have partnered for a promotional campaign to celebrate the release of “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”, the third and final installment in the three part film adaption based on the novel The Hobbit, which opened in theaters nationwide on December 17. From now to January 20th, adventure seekers can visit STA Travel’s website to enter the “PackYourBagginz” sweepstakes competition for a chance to win two round-trip flights to Auckland, New Zealand on Air New Zealand.

Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” follows the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and a company of dwarves. As the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance, dwarves, elves and men must unite in the face of darkness or be destroyed, as the story hurtles toward its epic conclusion. New Zealand’s rich beauty will once again take center stage when the film makes its U.S. debut during the holiday season.    

Travelers also have the opportunity to access exclusive flight deals from select U.S. cities to New Zealand. The special promotion will offer consumers an opportunity to experience Middle-earth, as New Zealand has been known ever since the first “The Lord of the Rings” movie was released in 2001.

“By teaming with Air New Zealand, our customers along with fans of ‘The Hobbit’, get to experience New Zealand’s awe-inspiring countryside and attractions that made this film come to life,” said Adam Cooper, Senior Vice President of STA Travel North America. “One winner will get an opportunity to explore Middle-earth up close and personal through this sweepstakes and we even customized special discount travel deals for all explorers.”

This Academy Award winning trilogy of films showcased New Zealand’s dramatic scenery on the big screen. The mythical Middle-earth encompassing dramatic scenery, including waterfalls, snow-capped peaks, and lush forest valleys, make it a travelers dream destination. Along with touring the country’s landscape, travelers can also experience New Zealand’s unique culinary scene and adventure activities.
