Share the magic of flight today and help Kiwi kids and teachers go on their next big adventure

Airpoints™ for Schools provides an opportunity for Kiwi schools to experience more than just a local bus trip. The programme allows Airpoints members to share the magic of flight by donating Airpoints Dollars™ to selected New Zealand schools to assist them with their travel ambitions, and to help them gain new experiences, knowledge and inspiration.

Thanks to the generosity of our Airpoints members, all of our schools have achieved their travel goals and will be taking off on their adventures very soon. Thank you for your support.
