See our excess baggage charges by selecting your country of departure.

The charges stated within this section apply when Air New Zealand baggage allowances and charges apply. Charges are applied based on the departure country of each flight unless otherwise stated.

If you are travelling with excess baggage, please remember to allow sufficient time to complete the necessary formalities at check-in. Please be aware that your excess baggage will be carried subject to space availability on your flight and fees are therefore collected at the airport.

As an alternative to paying excess baggage charges you may wish to consider sending any clothes or personal items as unaccompanied baggage.

Prepaid Extra Bags

To avoid paying the full airport excess baggage rate prepaid Extra Bags allows you to purchase extra bags in addition to your free checked baggage allowance (to a maximum of three bags in total, including additional frequent flyer benefit, if applicable), for a lot less than what you'd pay at the airport.

Extra Bags are only available when Air New Zealand baggage allowances and charges apply that are on Air New Zealand operated flights and can be selected while making a booking online, through the Contact Centre, or added to an existing booking up to 3 hours before your flight for international travel and 30 minutes for domestic New Zealand travel.

So, if you're struggling to fit everything in and have your booking reference handy, why not see if you can add Extra Bags.
