Frequently asked questions

When you first download the Air NZ mobile app, push notifications are enabled by default on Android, and on iPhone you are prompted to enable them.

We recommend you enable push notifications because they are helpful for a number of alerts, including changes to your flight time or boarding gate number, as well as letting you know when boarding commences. You can control the type of notifications you receive by going into 'Your settings' in the Air NZ mobile app.

To see whether push notifications are enabled on your device:

iPhone

Go to Settings > Notifications > Air NZ

To enable notifications, turn the allow notifications button on, if it isn't already.

Android

Access the in-app Air NZ mobile app menu (top right of screen) and select the notifications checkbox.

When you make a booking, the dates and times shown are local times, i.e. the departure time is based on the time at the origin and the arrival time is based on the time at your destination. If your calendar is in a different time zone, these times may appear to be offset.

This provides a cleaner experience in case you want to sign in using another account. Don’t worry, your bookings will be added again when you sign back in with the same credentials.

This could be because some airports do not accept mobile boarding passes, or it may be unavailable for a number of other reasons, technical or otherwise. If this is the case, please collect your boarding pass at the airport.
