England will travel straight from the tour of India to New Zealand next January, the newly released schedule for their trip to the Antipodes shows.
England will meet the Black Caps in three Tests, three one-day internationals and as many Twenty20s in a two-month tour that represents their first trip to New Zealand since 2008.
The players will fly directly from their five-match ODI tour of India, which finishes in Chandigarh on January 27, before arriving in Auckland two days later.
The announcement ensures that England are due to play in every month until March next year.
After arriving in New Zealand, England's players will have 11 days to prepare for the opening Twenty20 at Eden Park, with two warm-up matches scheduled in between.
Following the limited overs series, the first Test will start on March 6 at Dunedin's University Park - the first time the venue has hosted an England Test since 1966.
The second Test is due to start in Wellington on March 14 before the tour returns to Auckland for the final match beginning on March 22.
