More Points for Members of Air New Zealand's Airpoints Programme

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 4 November 2008

Under changes made to Air New Zealand's Airpoints programme, every fare purchased by Airpoints members on Air New Zealand operated flight will now earn Status Points, including Smart Saver and grabaseat fares.

Status Points will now also be used to determine tier status, ranging from Jade to Silver, Gold and Gold Elite. Previously, tier status within the programme was based on Airpoints Dollars earned (the currency used to buy flights and other rewards), but because these are not earned on some fares, some flights did not count towards this.

Group General Manager Short Haul Airlines Bruce Parton said the change is great news for customers who are regularly travelling throughout New Zealand and to Australia and the Pacific on lower-priced fares.

"These flights matter just as much to our customers as any other, and we felt it was important to recognise and reward those who are travelling regularly with the airline, regardless of the price they've paid for their fare," he said. "Now when you fly with Air New Zealand, every flight will count."

Air New Zealand will also be providing all Gold Elite, Gold and Silver Airpoints and Koru members with a new ePass to help them speed through the domestic airport. Gold Elite, Gold and Koru members will also be able book the new Space+ seats in 767, A320 and 737 aircraft at no extra cos. The more spacious Space+ section in the front of these three aircraft types provides an additional 2-5 inches of seat pitch from those seats in standard economy.
