If you're one of our most frequent flyers, you may qualify for a range of exclusive benefits and privileges, making your travel easier and more enjoyable.
As you collect Status Points you will move closer to reaching the next tier level.
Air New Zealand Airpoints™ benefits are exclusive to our Airpoints members and are designed to make traveling easier and more enjoyable. These benefits can be enjoyed when travelling on eligible Air New Zealand, Star Alliance, Cathay Pacific (when on an NZ flight number) and Virgin Australia (when on an NZ flight number) flights.
With Air New Zealand's participation in the Star Alliance network, becoming a Silver, Gold or Elite Airpoints member means that your tier status will be recognised in over 190 countries when travelling on Air New Zealand or any of the Star Alliance airlines. Airpoints Elite and Gold members will enjoy the special privileges of Star Alliance Gold status, while Airpoints Silver members will receive Star Alliance Silver status. Star Alliance benefits are available on Air New Zealand flights and also on our Star Alliance partner airlines.
All tier status benefits are valid for 12 months after your tier status becomes effective, unless you are elevated to a new tier in the interim.
