Air New Zealand Carepoints™

Make a difference, your Airpoints Dollars™ could help provide for Kiwis in need.

Challenging times remind us all how important it is to care about our neighbours and our whānau. Recent challenges have shown us that working together as a community brings out our best.

Right now, some Kiwis are really struggling. So when our Airpoints™ members told us they wanted to donate their Airpoints Dollars™ to people in need, we loved the idea and wanted to help.

Introducing Carepoints™

Air New Zealand Carepoints lets you gift your Airpoints Dollars to support New Zealand charities.

We looked to partner with organisations that are already making a real difference in Kiwis lives. So we’ve partnered with three charities. Women’s Refuge, New Zealand Red Cross and KidsCan.

You’ll be giving them the essential resources they need to help New Zealanders, like food, personal care, petrol and heating. Your chosen charity receives 100% of every Airpoints Dollar you donate, so your gift will help more Kiwis get back on their feet.  Donations close 19 June 2020, unless target donation limits are reached earlier.
