What you can do with your booking online

You can manage your own booking online whether it was made online, in person or over the phone.

Details required to manage your booking

To manage your booking you will need to enter your family name and Air New Zealand booking reference.

Your booking reference can be found on your ticket, and has six letters and/or numbers the last of which is always "H". If your booking was made through another website or travel agent, the booking reference may be described as Airline Ref or Record Locator.

Seat Select

You can select seats or view and change existing seat selections online. Seat Select is available on all Air New Zealand operated flights.

COVID-19: Changes to Seat Select
As a response to COVID-19 requirements, we will be physically distancing passengers from each other and crew on international flights, when capacity allows. From midnight 14 September, physical distancing is no longer required on NZ domestic flights. See our Seat Select page for more details.

Add Extra Bags

Struggling to fit everything in? Add prepaid Extra Bags on top of the baggage allowance included with your fare and save on the excess baggage charges at the airport.

Providing your flights are operated by Air New Zealand, you may have the chance to add Extra Bags. You can purchase a maximum of three Extra Bags, including the baggage allowance included with your fare and any frequent flyer benefits. If your fare does not include a baggage allowance, you'll need to upgrade to a fare that includes a baggage allowance before purchasing Extra Bags.

Prepaid baggage may not be available on all flights.

Upgrade product - Australia and Pacific Islands

Our Tasman and Island fares give you plenty of choice and if you're looking for something extra, you can choose to upgrade your chosen product. For example if you had booked Seat + Bag and then wanted to add a meal and access to movies on the flight, you can upgrade to The Works or Works Deluxe.

If there's more than one passenger on the booking you can also mix our Tasman and the Islands products between you and still be seated together.

When upgrading to Works Deluxe, all members on the booking must upgrade to Works Deluxe.

Please be aware that The Works and Works Deluxe are only available on Air New Zealand operated flights. 

Upgrade to an Economy Skycouchâ„¢

If you're flying Economy on a 777-300 long haul international service, you can choose to upgrade to Skycouchâ„¢. The Skycouch is a row of three Economy seats that together create a flexible space to stretch out in. It's like having your very own couch on the plane.
