Fast Bag

Fast Bag is a service available exclusively to Airpoints™ Elite, Gold, Elite Partner and Koru members. Pick up your checked bag right beside the aircraft on Air New Zealand regional domestic flights.

In June 2021, we made some changes to Fast Bag and it's important to know what's different.

How it works

Check-in on the Air NZ mobile app, online, at a check-in kiosk or at the airport counter

Check-in your Fast Bag at the airport and attach the standard checked-in bag tag. Then, ask one of our friendly airport team to attach your Fast Bag tag and we'll take care of your bag from there

Bag drop closes 30 minutes prior to your scheduled departure so please ensure you have plenty of time to drop your Fast Bag

After your flight arrives at your destination you can collect your bag from the Fast Bag collection area as you exit the aircraft

When can you use Fast Bag?

Fast Bag is a regional travel benefit exclusively available to our Airpoints™ Elite, Gold, Elite Partner and Koru members only.

You can use Fast Bag on regional flights (flight numbers NZ5000-NZ5999 and NZ8000-NZ8999 flown by the Q300 and ATR aircraft).

  • You're travelling with just one checked bag
  • Your bag weighs less than 15kg and is not oversized (such as bikes or golf bags)
  • Your bag does not contain any restricted items, like spare or loose batteries
