In the air, you can earn Airpoints Dollars™ on many Air New Zealand and Star Alliance flights. Some flights with our other airline partners may also earn Airpoints Dollars. On the ground, you can earn Airpoints Dollars by using an Airpoints card partner, and with our hotel or rental car partners.

You can use your Airpoints Dollars just like Australian dollars to buy any seat for sale on Air New Zealand. You can also use Airpoints Dollars to buy seats on many of our Star Alliance Partners. You could also buy a Koru membership or use them for car rental or hotel accommodation.


Koru members can unwind in our regional, domestic and international Air New Zealand lounges.
