Airpoints members are able to purchase discounted tickets on an Air New Zealand operated international flights using Airpoints Dollars. These are called Companion tickets and are available if you have already purchased a Business Class, Premium Economy, Economy Flexi (long haul), or Flexi Works and Flexi Works Deluxe (short haul) tickets.

How much does a companion ticket cost?

Simply look at our Companion Ticket Chart to see how many Airpoints Dollars you need to purchase a companion ticket.

How can I purchase a companion ticket?

Companion ticket bookings can be made by calling the Air New Zealand Contact Centre.

You can request a companion ticket up to 355 days in advance, but you need to book your own paid ticket first.

Availability of these fares is strictly limited. We recommend you phone the Air New Zealand Contact Centre just prior to booking your own paid ticket to ensure that there are companion seats available on the required flight(s) as this information can change quickly.

Applicable contact centre service fees apply.

Important information

  • Companion tickets are not available in conjunction with Airpoints™ reward tickets, travel industry fares, prize/promotion tickets and upgrades or Air New Zealand Flights operated by Virgin Australia.
