The details stated below apply to Air New Zealand operated flights only. If your flight is operated by another airline including Air New Zealand codeshare flights, you will need to check the details with the airline operating the service.

Whether stowed in checked baggage, in your cabin baggage, or on your person, prohibited goods include: briefcases with alarm devices; gases (including camping gas); corrosives such as mercury or wet cell batteries; explosives such as fireworks and flares; flammable liquids such as lighter fuel; flammable solids such as fire lighters and matches; oxidising substances such as bleaching powder; poisonous and infectious substances; radioactive materials and magnetised materials.

Specific requirements exist for the carriage of camping stoves/fuel containers, firearms and any devices with petrol engines. Carriage of these items will require passengers to prepare the items or arrange documentation in advance of the travel date.

It should be noted that devices with petrol engines cannot be carried as checked or cabin baggage and must be consigned as cargo.

Power Banks (e.g. Portable Devices used to store power)

The primary purpose of these devices is as a power source. They are considered to be a spare battery and therefore must be individually protected to prevent short circuits and must be carried in cabin baggage only.

Small Vehicles Powered by Lithium Batteries (e.g. Hoverboards, Airwheel, Solowheel, mini-Segway, or balance wheel (but are not limited to these product names))

These recreational battery-powered vehicles are forbidden from checked baggage, carry-on baggage and cargo on Air New Zealand operated services.

Electronic Cigarettes (including eCigars, ePipes etc)

Electronic cigarettes, also called personal vaporisers or electronic nicotine delivery systems, are battery-powered devices that simulate smoking by producing a heated vapour which resembles smoke. These items are not permitted to be carried in checked in baggage and must only be carried in the aircraft passenger cabin.

Air New Zealand policy prohibits the use and charging of electronic cigarettes at any time on board the aircraft.

Firearms

All firearms and ammunition leaving New Zealand must have a permit, except under specific circumstances (refer to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) or www.mfat.govt.nz). Additionally, many countries have pre travel clearance requirements that you must apply for prior to travel.

All firearms must be confirmed as unloaded and carried in locked receptacles suitable for air carriage. For example this must be a suitcase or box or a container that is designed to prevent access. For firearms carried to or from the USA or UK the firearm case must be hard sided.

You must notify Air New Zealand at least 2 weeks prior to your date of departure when travelling to the United Kingdom so that we can seek approval for carriage of your firearm on your behalf. For other destinations please notify us of your intention to carry a firearm and or ammunition as soon as possible after you have obtained any required permits.

If you are unsure as to whether you can take something on the aircraft, please ask your travel agent or Air New Zealand for details of the exact requirements. Carriage of firearms and ammunition is not permitted when connecting on another airline.
