Disrupt Reimbursement Consideration

If your journey has been disrupted for a controllable reason, e.g. engineering, or crew shortages, and your new itinerary requires you to stay overnight in a place you do not reside, our airport team will be working hard to secure accommodation for you. 

Over peak travel periods, availability is extremely limited and you may be required to source your own accommodation.

As a guideline, we recommend $250.00 per room and $90.00 per person, per night for meals. This is a recommended amount only. All expenses must be reasonable and supported by receipts.

For the purpose of reimbursement consideration, please ensure you retain all itemised receipts, and send them to us via one of our messaging channels, along with the following information:

  • Your Air New Zealand booking reference (This will be 6 characters, ending in H)
  • Flight number and date of the disrupted flight
  • The reason for needing to claim expenses
  • A copy of your receipts along with any other supporting documentation
  • The below bank account details

Account Holder Details

  • Full Name

To be able to process reimbursement payments, we require the following account information, including some currency-specific details:

  • Bank Name

Thank you in advance for your patience during times of high messaging volumes.
