Airpoints™ for Schools

Supporting school communities throughout New Zealand.
Last updated 3:30pm 5 April 2017

Airpoints™ for Schools provides an opportunity for Kiwi schools to experience more than just a local bus trip. The programme allows Airpoints members to share the magic of flight by donating Airpoints Dollars™ to selected New Zealand schools to assist them with their travel ambitions, and to help them gain new experiences, knowledge and inspiration.

Thanks to the generosity of our Airpoints members, we are thrilled to announce that all of the schools participating in this year's Airpoints for Schools programme have met their targets early. Stay tuned as we follow each school's journey and share their stories.
