  • Passengers with disabilities
  • Use the special assistance request form or call 1-866-399-0587 to inform Air New Zealand that you will need additional assistance.
  • You can book wheelchair services online or by phone. 
  • You can carry a personal wheelchair plus another chair (e.g. sports/shower) in the cargo compartment free of charge (even if it is disassembled and broken down into 2 or 3 pieces. However, if you’re carrying additional equipment, you will be charged for it. 
  • You must label your wheelchair with your name and address. 
  • If you’re carrying a battery-powered wheelchair, remember the following:
    • Battery-powered wheelchairs that cannot be fully collapsed may not be accommodated on smaller aircraft, so always check with Air New Zealand before booking or refer to the table below:
Aircraft Maximum Dimensions 
A320Height 97cm/38in Width 79cm/31in Length 131cm/52in 
ATR72Height 100cm/40in
(140cm/55in for large mobility aids)Width 60cm/24in Length 100cm/40in 
Q300Height 82cm/32in Width 75cm/30in Length 120cm/47in 
Note. Q300 and ATR72 aircraft can be interchanged at short notice.
  • Be sure to protect a non-spillable battery’s terminals from a short circuit and attach it securely to the wheelchair/mobility aid. 
  • If your wheelchair/mobility aid is operated by a spillable battery, you must disconnect the terminals to protect against shortcircuiting, and stow the wheelchair/mobility aid in an upright position. If this is not possible, you must remove the battery and carry it in approved packaging. 
  • You must inform the check-in staff about the type of battery your wheelchair/mobility aid contains. 
  • To prevent accidents, remove the wheelchair’s joystick/controller from the wheelchair and carry it with you. 
  • Online wheelchair service codes include:
    • SSR WCHR, if you can walk short distances and can use the stairs to walk to your seat but require assistance getting to and from the aircraft. 
    • SSR WCHS, if you can walk short distances, such as to your seat once you’re on board but require assistance getting to or from the aircraft. 
    • SSR WCHC, if you can use a wheelchair but require your upper body to be manually lifted or require the use of an onboard aisle chair to get to/from your seat once you’re inside the aircraft. In such a scenario, you can choose from the following 5 options:
      • WCHC Self Reliant, if you completely rely on a wheelchair but can self-transfer yourself to an aircraft seat and wheelchair.

      • WCHC No Safety Assistant, which is only available on direct flights to/from/through the United States, for passengers who are completely immobile and travelling without a safety assistant. This means you are completely wheelchair-dependent and are unable to self-transfer to an aircraft seat or your wheelchair. In such a scenario, Air New Zealand will help transfer you to your aircraft seat/wheelchair. However, you must be able to take care of yourself in case of an emergency. 
      • WCHC Non-Travelling Safety Assistant, which is available only on domestic flights within New Zealand for passengers who are completely immobile but can arrange for their own safety assistant at each airport. This option includes lifting assistance inside the aircraft but does not cover inflight assistance such as eating, personal hygiene, and medical services.
      • WCHC Eagle Lifting Device, if you are completely immobile and require a lifting device. This service can only be requested at select airports (for Jet Services) at Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington, and Auckland. If you’re travelling from any other airport on non-Jet aircraft, you must travel with a safety assistant. Eagle Lifts can be provided with sufficient advance notice in Perth and Sydney.
  • If you’re travelling with a wheelchair/mobility aid powered by lithium/lithium-ion batteries, remember the following:
    • The permissible limit is 300Wh. If your wheelchair/mobility aid requires 2 batteries, the battery power must not exceed 160Wh per battery. 
    • Before you check in your wheelchair/mobility aid, be sure to remove the batteries that are designed to be removed and carry them with you in the passenger cabin. 
    • You must insulate the battery terminals to protect the batteries from damage and shortcircuits.
    • Non-removable batteries must be attached securely to the wheelchair/mobility aid and the terminals protected from any chances of shortcircuiting. You must be able to explain at the airport how your wheelchair/mobility aid can be fully deactivated. 
    • You must carry your spare batteries in the aircraft cabin, subject to a limit of 1 spare battery not exceeding 300Wh or 2 spare batteries not exceeding 160Wh each.
    • You must carry with you details of the Lithium Content (in grams) or the Watt-hour (Wh) capacity of your wheelchair’s/mobility device’s installed and spare batteries. Lithium batteries that do not contain clear markings of Lithium Content or Watt-hours (Wh) will not be accepted.

Frequently Asked Questions on Air New Zealand Booking

Your Air New Zealand booking reference number is a 6-character number such as MB3R2H or ALJJ1H, which always ends in H. It can be found in your confirmation email, e-ticket, and Airpoints account.

If it looks different, it may be something else. 

  • If it starts with NZ and ends with up to four numbers, it could be your flight number. 
  • If it is 13 digits long and starts with 086, it is your ticket number.
  • If it is a 6-character code and ends in a letter other than an H, you may have booked your ticket through a different airline. 

If you’re still unable to locate your booking reference, call Air New Zealand at 1-866-399-0587.

No, they’re not. Your booking reference is a 6-character number with numbers or letters, ending in the letter H. It can be shared by all passengers in your group, and all the flights in your itinerary. 

Air New Zealand’s ticket number is a 13-digit number starting with 086 for all Air New Zealand flights. It is unique to each passenger, and you can have more than one ticket number for your journey.

You can find your Air New Zealand ticket number in the booking confirmation email you would have received after booking your ticket. The email includes your e-Ticket as a PDF attachment, along with your ticket number at the top left corner next to your name. 

If you’re unable to locate the booking confirmation email, contact Air New Zealand for assistance.

Yes, you can manage your flight bookings by signing in to your Airpoints account. Once you sign in, you will be able to view your flights under Your Bookings and make the changes you wish. Simply enter your booking reference number, flight details, or hotel itinerary to locate your booking. If you’re booking online, remember to include your Airpoints number. 

When you book online, be sure to include your Airpoints number.

You can make Air New Zealand domestic flight bookings just as you would an international flight booking—by phone (1-866-399-0587), online via AirNewZealand.com, through the mobile app, your travel agent, or an Air New Zealand call center/ticket office.

Call Air New Zealand at 1-866-399-0587 if you still have a question. This number is open 24/7 and toll-free if you’re calling from the United States or Canada.

You need to pay for your ticket typically when you make a reservation—or when Air New Zealand tells you or your agent. If you don’t pay by this date, the airline will likely cancel your Reservation.

If you want to request a special meal, you must call Air New New Zealand at 1-866-399-0587 (or the airline office/call center in your city) at least 24 hours before your flight’s scheduled departure time. However, on some routes, you may have to book at least 4 days before departure. 

You’re allowed to bring your own food aboard, but this may be subject to the customs regulations at your destination airport. For more information, call 1-866-399-0587 or refer to the Special Meals page.

If you miss your flight, your reservation will be cancelled without a refund. If your ticket is multi-city, all the flights may be cancelled without a refund—unless your ticket allows you to miss your flight without penalty.

No, you don’t need to reconfirm your reservation with Air New Zealand before travelling, but you may need to reconfirm it with other airlines on your itinerary. However, you should check the website or mobile app for any changes to your flight’s schedule.

Long-haul child fares for children between 2 and 11 years accompanied by an adult passenger are 75% of the adult fare, but on Business Premier Class, the child fare is the same as the adult fare.
