Above & Beyond

Above & Beyond™ - the rewards programme for business.

Above & Beyond™ is our way of repaying the loyalty to your business. If your company spends $20,000 or more on air travel each year and is not in the Airpoints for Business programme or in commercial airline agreement with Air New Zealand, you're eligible to register. Much in the same way Airpoints™ work, every time you purchase an Air New Zealand flight on your Travelcard you accrue Business Travel Points which can then be redeemed for great rewards.

About the programme

As a member of Above & Beyond, use your Travelcard to book all your company travel and you'll start earning Business Travel Points on all your Air New Zealand flights. It doesn't matter if they are booked online or with your usual travel management provider.

For every $100 (excl. GST) spent on Air New Zealand flights using your Travelcard we'll award your Above & Beyond account 10 Business Travel Points.

Redeem these for rewards that best suit your business when you're ready. Rewards can be shared across your business so everyone can benefit. None of this will affect your travellers earning Airpoints - it's just an extra benefit for your business and our way of saying thanks.

Examples of the kind of rewards your business can receive are:
