Partner lounges

It is not always possible for us to have our own Air New Zealand lounges at all our destinations, but with our extensive airline partnerships we have been able to source some great spots for you to relax in whilst waiting for your flight.

Remember to enter your Airpoints™ number at the time of making your booking, and always carry your Airpoints Elite, Gold, Elite Partner or Koru membership card to display to Lounge Hosts when accessing our partner lounges.

Access to our partner lounges is available from 3 hours prior to departure.

Lounge access is only available prior to the departure of your Air New Zealand operated and ticketed flight on the same day from the same terminal. Children may not be brought into our partner lounges in addition to the applicable guest allowance for each partner lounge. Koru Guest Cards purchased from Air New Zealand and Air New Zealand eVouchers/passes cannot be used at partner lounges.

Airpoints Elite and Gold members (Star Alliance Gold Status holders), along with travellers that are flying in Business Premier are also able to access a wider range of lounges as per the Star Alliance Gold benefits, eligible Star Alliance Gold members must be departing on a flight with a Star Alliance carrier. See the Star Alliance website for details.

Important information

As many airlines are changing their hours of operation or closing their lounges in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot ensure Partner Lounge access will be available. For the most up-to-date information on any potential lounge closures or restrictions, we recommend checking lounge access arrangements with the operating carrier at the airport upon departure
