Known issues

Fare finder panel

Higher security settings in Internet Explorer are known to disable the 'Search' button on the fare finder panel. To solve this problem, reduce your security settings to medium-high for Internet Explorer 7 or medium for Internet Explorer 6 (on the Security tab of Internet Options). Or alternatively add Air New Zealand to the list of trusted sites, ensuring the same or lower security settings as above.

JavaScript

If JavaScript is disabled or not available on some browsers this can reduce or disable important functionality, including the fare total displayed when booking online. JavaScript is also used for opening new browser windows. Check your Internet Explorer options to ensure JavaScript is enabled. Early versions of Internet Explorer are likely to have problems executing JavaScript contained in this site.
