Booking / Listing

Please ensure you allow for minimum connection times, generally 2-3 hours for international and 45 mins for domestic New Zealand.

Lap-held infants cannot currently be booked using myIDTravel for Domestic NZ-only. There are no issues for booking in myIDTravel on international and any domestic journey where there’s an international leg.

-          If myIDTravel shows the error message at Shopping Basket "Unknown Communication Error" or "Domestic bookings with infants not supported", please start the booking again without the infant.

-          Then, anytime up to 1 hour prior to the Domestic flight’s departure, call Air NZ Reservations to request the infant’s name be manually added. Please provide the booking reference (PNR).

Listing is mandatory on all NZ flights.

If your ticket number begins with 086 a listing is automatically created when purchasing your eticket. If your original travel listing date has passed, you must access your ticket on myIDTravel and list again for your new travel date.

If your ticket does not begin with 086 you must contact NZ's contract centre on +64 357 3000 to create your listing. Please have your ticket number available.

Goods and Services Tax (GST) on domestic New Zealand fares:

If your ticket number begins with 086, GST is payable for domestic flights. myIDTravel includes GST in the ‘Total Government Taxes’, not in the ‘Fare’, and rounds GST to the nearest 1 decimal place in NZD.

Once the payment is validated, you will automatically receive an eTicket itinerary receipt by email.
