Great news - you can earn Airpoints Dollars™ and Status Points on all Air New Zealand flights (excluding greenlight grabaseat fares via grabaseat.co.nz and fares purchased using Airpoints Dollars).
The Airpoints™ programme has two currencies:
- Airpoints Dollars™ - these can be used just like cash to purchase flights and a range of other rewards
- Status Points - which help you earn your way to a higher tier status in our frequent flyer programme
We have developed a handy earning rates look-up table to help you work out what you could earn on Air New Zealand and partner flights. Visit www.airnzpoints.co.nz, fill in your departure and arrival cities and we’ll do the rest - it’s that easy.
There are lots of ways to earn through flying including:
- Air New Zealand Flights
- Earn Airpoints Dollars on most Air New Zealand ticketed and operated fares (excluding greenlight and grabaseat fares via grabaseat.co.nz)
- Star Alliance Flights
- Air New Zealand is a member of the Star Alliance which means as an Airpoints member you can earn Airpoints Dollars on more than 30 airlines across the globe when travelling on a Star Alliance marketed and operated flight. It is important to note that you are unable to earn Airpoints Dollars on codeshare services marketed by a Star Alliance airline but not operated by a Star Alliance airline eg. A Lufthansa numbered flight operated by their subsidiary Germanwings.
- Air New Zealand Partner Flights
