Earning Airpoints Dollars™

Travelling for work? Continue to earn Airpoints Dollars™ and Status Points for yourself, and earn Airpoints Dollars for your business at the same time.

What’s more, there are also additional opportunities to earn Airpoints Dollars through your everyday business spend with our Business Partner Network.

Earning on flights

Every time you or a member of your Airpoints™ for Business account travel on an eligible flight¹ for work, you will continue to earn the same number of Airpoints Dollars and Status Points as before, and the business will earn Airpoints Dollars too – at 20% of your personal earn rate. This is on top of what you’re currently earning today!

To ensure that your business doesn’t miss out on Airpoints Dollars, make sure you and your employees assign your travel as ‘for business’. If you are booking your travel online, you will be prompted to nominate your travel as ‘for business’ during the booking process. If you have forgotten to do so, or if your travel is booked through a travel agent and you have not taken your flight, you can change the purpose of your travel by managing your booking via your online Air New Zealand account. To find out more about how to do this, please see our Frequently Asked Questions.

Eligible flights1

To be eligible for Airpoints Dollar earning, flights must be purchased in New Zealand and taken on:

  • an Air New Zealand operated aircraft (with an Air New Zealand ticket and flight number)
  • a Virgin Australia operated aircraft for travel within Australia, and between New Zealand and Australia (with an Air New Zealand ticket and flight number)
  • a Cathay Pacific operated aircraft if travelling between Hong Kong and Auckland (with an Air New Zealand ticket and flight number)

Please note that earning is not available on any of our other Alliance and Codeshare partners.
