Check in is now easier than ever on your computer or web-enabled phone.

Why has your boarding pass not been issued electronically?
*Home printed boarding passes are not accepted at all airports. Mobile boarding passes, in the Air NZ mobile app, are only accepted for domestic New Zealand flights and outbound flights from New Zealand airports.
If your boarding pass is not issued electronically, you will need to collect your boarding pass at the airport from a check-in kiosk or counter.
