Note: Distances are based on direct domestic flights operated by Air New Zealand.

  1. A Domestic Add-on is earned when a domestic Sector is flown in conjunction with an international Sector and the domestic Sector Flight has a Flight number that is different from the Flight number for the international Sector.
  2. Airpoints™ members cannot earn Status Points on Airpoints Reward Travel, or industry travel (booking classes N, R).
  3. If your Journey involves a combination of Flights on Air New Zealand and Flights on Partner Airlines, the Air New Zealand Flights will earn Status Points based on the rates in the Air New Zealand Status Points Chart. Only Flights on Star Alliance Partners will earn Status Points. The Star Alliance Partner Flights will earn Status Points based on rates in the Partner Airline Status Points Chart.
  4. Status Points earned are calculated on your whole Journey based on the point of departure and final destination (which is the furthest point in your travels from point of origin). For example, if you travel from Palmerston North - Auckland - Los Angeles - London and then back again to Palmerston North in Discount Economy, you would earn 120 Status Points each way (110 Status Points plus a Domestic Add-on of 10 Status Points), a total of 240 Status Points for the return Journey.
  5. If your Journey is not covered by one of the Zones above, a combination of Zones will apply.
  6. Discount Economy means Smart Saver, Flexi Saver, Global Saver fares and grabaseat™ fares.
  7. Full Economy means Flexi fares and Global Flexi fares.
