How much checked-in baggage can I take?
Use our baggage calculator to see how much you can take on your flight. If you need to pack more, just add a prepaid bag.
Allowance applies to flights operated by Air New Zealand. If part of your journey includes codeshare flights or other airlines, please also check their allowance.
Children's baggage allowance
Our child fares have the same baggage allowance as adults. Infants do not get a checked-in bag, but can have one piece of carry-on. Both fares allow you to bring a stroller and a car seat for no extra charge. Please check with other airlines if they're part of your journey as well. Find out more
If you want to take more checked-in baggage than your fare allows, you have several options. To avoid paying the full airport excess baggage fees purchase prepaid extra bags before you get to the airport. Remember, charges are applied based on the departure country of each flight unless otherwise stated.
