Flying with Air New Zealand earns you Status Points which will enable you to discover a world of benefits and privileges.
The great thing about Status Points is that you'll earn them on all eligible Air New Zealand flights and many Star Alliance and other partner flights. So even if you're flying on our cheapest fares, you’ll still be getting closer to the next tier.
Status Points must be earned in a 12 month period to achieve tier status. However, once you achieve a tier status, you only require 90% of those Status Points to retain that status the following year.
To become an Elite, Gold or Silver Airpoints™ member make sure you give us your Airpoints number every time you fly with Air New Zealand or one of our applicable partner airlines. Once you've reached Elite, Gold or Silver status, you'll enjoy a range of benefits and privileges whenever you travel with Air New Zealand or our Star Alliance Partners.
