Claim missing Airpoints™

Are you missing Airpoints Dollars™ or Status Points? Let us know, and we'll sort it out.

Claiming missing Airpoints during Alert Levels

We will continue to process missing Airpoints claims however there may be a delay in processing time. Please check that you're eligible to claim. Thanks for your patience.

If you're missing Airpoints with our partners and the usual claim process is unavailable please refer to the 'contact us' page on the partner's website.

Remember, we can only process your claim if:

  • You've completed your travel at least:
    • 72 hours ago if on an Air New Zealand flight
    • 14 days ago if on a Partner airline flight
  • Your flight was in the last six months
  • Your flight or seating product purchase was eligible to earn Airpoints Dollars and Status Points
  • If it was a business flight, you were a member of Airpoints for Business when you flew
  • Your flight was no more than 30 days before joining Airpoints

How long should you wait before claiming?

There are lots of ways to earn Airpoints Dollars and Status Points, and some come through later than others. It's possible your missing Airpoints rewards are still being processed.

Airpoints Dollars and Status Points from Air New Zealand flights can take several days to appear in your account. Airpoints Dollars and Status Points from partner airlines, Airpoints Partners and Airpoints earning credit cards can take longer. We suggest waiting three-four weeks before lodging your claim.

You can make a claim up to six months after your flight or purchase, if you were an Airpoints member at the time of travel or purchase.

Do you need to claim?

Check your Airpoints Statement online before you claim, to make sure your Airpoints Dollars or Status Points haven't already been credited.

You can check your Airpoints Statement in your Airpoints online account, or in your Air NZ mobile app via the 'Airpoints' tab and visiting 'Latest activity'.


We can usually help if you flew with us, our Star Alliance partners, or one of our other partner airlines. Just log in to your Airpoints account and make an online claim.

You'll need your 13-digit e-ticket number to make a claim. Your e-ticket number is found in your booking confirmation email. Keep your e-ticket number and boarding pass until you receive your missing Airpoints rewards.

Business flights

If you forgot to nominate your travel as work-related and are missing Airpoints Dollars from your Airpoints for Business account, submit an online claim and identify your flight as 'for business'. If you haven't flown yet, you can change the purpose of your travel in your online account under 'My bookings'. Locate your business travel, select 'View fare information' and nominate the flight as 'for business' in the Airpoints for Business section. Note, Status Points cannot be earned to an Airpoints for Business account.

We add these Airpoints Dollars to your account at the end of each month, once you've completed your rental or hotel stay.

If your expected Airpoints Dollars don't appear in your account, you can make a claim up to six months later. Just complete a Missing Airpoints Claim form. Include any supporting documents to help us verify your claim with the relevant hotel or rental car company.

Airpoints earning credit cards

We add the Airpoints Dollars and Status Points from your Airpoints earning credit card, debit card or OneSmart card to your account each month, on your card's statement date. If you're not sure when that is, your bank can help.

Your Airpoints Dollars and Status Points might miss your monthly statement. In that case they should appear on your next month's statement. If they don't, call us on 0800 247 764 and have your card statement handy.
