Passengers on the Night Rider flights will still enjoy Air New Zealand's great customer service, but in order to offer fares this low there are a few restrictions to note:

  • The late night flights skip the traditional inflight drink and snack service
  • Passengers travelling on these fares won't be eligible for Koru Lounge entry prior to departure
  • Elite, Gold Airpoints and Koru members won’t be able to request premium seats in advance
  • Unaccompanied minors and pets travelling as checked baggage are not accepted on Night Rider flights
  • Night Rider flights can't be booked as part of a through fare domestically or internationally
  • All seats on this flight are one price so there are no group fares available
