Airpoints Dollars () is the currency of Air New Zealand's frequent flyer programme1. In plain English, that means you can use them to buy tickets or a space-available upgrade on every available Air New Zealand ticketed and operated flight.
And you don't have to be Einstein to know how many points you need for that jaunt in Japan. Whatever the base fare is, that's what you'll pay in Airpoints Dollars. Customers who purchase fares using Airpoints Dollars will be required to pay in cash the government and airport charges. You can use your Airpoints Dollars on companion tickets and space-available upgrades too.
You can fly pretty much wherever you want with Airpoints Dollars, because they're also good for flights on any Star Alliance or other partner airline. That adds up to over 1000 destinations in 160 countries. Phew! Check them out, along with the latest prices, at airnewzealand.co.nz.
