Air New Zealand Koru Club

If you happen to travel frequently throughout New Zealand, a membership to Air New Zealand’s Koru Club will grant you access to the airline’s lounges and provide you with a number of other perks. While most of the benefits are centralized within the country, partnerships with Virgin Australia and Cathay Pacific extend your lounge access to six international destinations – most of which are in Australia. Within NZ, the rewards are plentiful. All members are permitted to bring a guest into the lounge for free, in addition to receiving priority check-in, extra baggage and priority baggage services. The complimentary valet service in Auckland and Christchurch is certainly one of the club’s best features for busy travellers – and we love that they offer to organize dry cleaning and other errands for you while you’re away. We also like that the club has a flat fee with no tiered membership – though it does happen to be on the more expensive side.

Koru Club Membership Cost

NZD 580 annual fee + NZD 255 preliminary joining fee

To purchase an annual membership, sign up online at the Koru Club website, or visit the nearest Koru lounge. Online processing occurs immediately.

Note that prices are subject to change. Discounts are available for seniors and those who purchase a multi-year membership.
