Air New Zealand operates Air New Zealand Domestic, Regional, International, and Elite Priority Lounge locations worldwide, with the majority of the locations based in New Zealand and Australia. Business and first class passengers, as well as Airpoints Gold and Elite members (Star Alliance Gold) departing on a Star Alliance carrier, have access to these lounges, depending on the specific itinerary, as well as eligible Star Alliance partner operated lounges worldwide. Associated third party lounges may be available in certain locations where a Star Alliance partner lounge is not available. Air New Zealand's Koru Club membership allows members to access regional, domestic, and international Air New Zealand Lounges, as well as selected partner lounges overseas, when departing on an Air New Zealand flight.
In addition to purchasing lounge access with LoungeBuddy, there are a number of ways travelers can get airport lounge access around the world.
