About Air New Zealand

Air New Zealand is a global airliner. It accepts payments of various forms including UATP charge card.

Air New Zealand is a member of the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Users Group.

In October 08, Air New Zealand B747 pilot, Captain Clulow, dangled over 65 feet in the air - all in the name of advertising as a part of Air New Zealand's bid to make the unique 'kiwi can-do' attitude famous throughout the world.

Usage of biofuels

Air New Zealand is one of several air carriers working to diversify and secure its energy future through participation in the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Users Group. That effort includes a commitment to sustainability criteria for fuel sourcing and commercializing plant-based fuels that perform as well as, or better than, kerosene-based fuel but with a smaller carbon lifecycle. The goal is to create a portfolio of next-generation biofuels that can be blended with traditional kerosene fuel (Jet A) to improve environmental performance.

In November 08, Air New Zealand and Boeing announced December 3, 2009 as the date for the airline's sustainable biofuels flight from Auckland using a 747-400 jetliner. Conducted in partnership with Rolls-Royce and UOP, a Honeywell company, one of the airplane's four Rolls-Royce RB211 engines will be powered in part using advanced generation biofuels derived from jatropha. Air New Zealand now becomes the first airline to use a commercially viable biofuel sourced using sustainability best practices.
