Domestic flights

What is the luggage allowance on domestic flights?

Our preferred airline is Air New Zealand and the airfares we will book for you all have a luggage allowance of 1x23kg.  However, if you are travelling with children you may also take a pram and a car seat.

If you are wanting to travel with sporting equipment this counts as part of your checked-in baggage and the usual weight allowance applies.
If you need more allowance, for a moderate additional fee you can buy a Prepaid Extra Bag before you fly.

Air New Zealand offer the best domestic travel network across the country. With regular flights between the main centres (Auckland, Christchurch, Queenstown, Wellington) and many more flights between the regional centres (such as Rotorua, Taupo, Napier, Dunedin) we can always create an itinerary to accommodate the schedules.
