What you can do with your booking online

You can manage your own booking online if it was made online through the Government portal. Here’s some explanation about the things you can do online. For other needs please phone 0800 199 111.

Request seats

You can request seats for most Air New Zealand customers. Whether you've just made a new booking, or have a booking that was made some time ago, you can request seats online anytime before your flight if the type of fare you have purchased or, your membership status, allows you to.

Please note while we do our best to accommodate all seat requests, these are only confirmed at check-in since operational requirements may require seating to be reassigned. Seat request is not available for Seat only or Seat + Bag Tasman and Pacific bookings.
