You can manage your own booking online whether it was made online, in person or over the phone. Here’s some explanation about the things you can do online. For other needs please phone 0800 028 4149.
If you’ve already made a flight booking and haven’t selected seats or you have and want to change them, you can retrieve your booking online and get started. Please note that international multistop bookings cannot be retrieved online and changes need to be made through the Contact Centre (service fees may apply).
Seat Select is available on all Air New Zealand operated flights and if you’re after a bit more legroom or a better location on the aircraft, why not see if a Preferred Seat or an Exit Row option is available.
Add Extra Bags
Struggling to fit everything in? Add prepaid Extra Bags on top of the baggage allowance included with your fare and save on the excess baggage rates charged at the airport.
To get started, simply retrieve your booking and providing your flights are operated by Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia, you may have the chance to add Extra Bags. Also, if you’ve already added Extra Bags, you may still be able to add more. Please note that international multistop bookings cannot be retrieved online and changes need to be made through the Contact Centre (service fees may apply).
Extra Bags can be purchased to a maximum of three checked bags in total, including the baggage allowance included with your fare.
If your fare does not include a baggage allowance, you’ll need to upgrade to a fare that includes a baggage allowance before purchasing Extra Bags.
If you're booked to travel on our new Economy long-haul international service, you can choose to upgrade to our Skycouch with this upgrade product option. This option is currently only available on the Boeing 777-300 aircraft on our NZ1/NZ2 services between London Heathrow, Los Angeles and Auckland and v.v. for departures from 2 Apr 2011 onwards.
Please note, it is important that you request your product upgrade on the website for the currency you used to purchase your flights.
For bookings paid in British pounds, please use our United Kingdom website, www.airnewzealand.co.uk, to upgrade the products in your booking.
Add passport details (and Secure Flight data)
Under the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Secure Flight program, Air New Zealand is required to collect Secure Flight Passenger Data which includes a passenger's full name (as it appears on government-issued identification), date of birth, gender, and TSA issued Redress Number (if available).
The purpose of the Secure Flight program is to enhance the security of air travel through the use of improved watch list matching to identify known and suspected terrorists.
If you did not enter your passport details (and Secure Flight data) as part of your booking, please use the ‘Add passport details’ option on the homepage to enter this data prior to travel.
For more information about the TSA's Secure Flight program visit TSA's website.
