Travelling internationally

Why should I check in online?

  • Select your seat
    You can still choose your seat when you check in online or on your mobile
  • Receive your boarding pass by email
    You can print it at home, or at the check-in kiosks at the airport. If you're in New Zealand, we can scan your emailed boarding pass from your phone
  • Print bag tags yourself 
    If you're checking in bags, head straight to a kiosk to print out your bag tags when you arrive at the airport. Then take your bags to the bag drop. Details on your flight's exact check-in timings are on your email or e-ticket. Note that these are closing times and they include dropping off your bags if you have them.

If you're unable to check in online

  • Your itinerary may include a flight not operated by Air New Zealand
  • Your passport details may not be up to date
  • You may not have the necessary visas
  • You may be trying to check in an unaccompanied minor
  • There may be operational issues

If you're unable to check in online, you'll need to check in at the airport so please allow some extra time.
