You can also use them when you're booking travel with Air New Zealand:
If you don't have enough Airpoints Dollars for your next flight, you can use a mix of Airpoints Dollars and cash through Airpoints Flexipay.
Earn Status Points to access more travel benefits when you fly.
Status Points are earned every time you fly with us, Star Alliance airlines, or our other partner airlines. You can also earn Status Points with some Airpoints earning credit cards.
Each Status Point moves you closer to the next Airpoints membership tier. You start as an Airpoints member, but with enough Status Points within a 12 month period, you could advance to Silver, Gold, or Elite.
Each tier gives you new benefits, like upgrades, extra baggage allowance, lounge access and more.
All members who are Elite, Gold and Silver tier status as at 20 March 2020 will have their current tier extended for 12 months due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Eligible Airpoints Members who hold Elite, Gold or Silver tier status on 31 January 2021 will have their current tier extended for a further 12 months.
