Inflight entertainment

Find out what entertainment is on board Air New Zealand flights.

Enjoy hours of entertainment with the latest blockbuster films, music, multi-player games, snacks and much more all from the comfort of your seat. Start your on-demand entertainment system the moment you take your seat with our gate-to-gate entertainment.*

When you fly with Air New Zealand you'll have personal on-demand entertainment screens in each seat back. We offer gate-to-gate inflight entertainment, meaning most passengers can start using their entertainment system as soon as they are on board, right through to when the plane lands. Our range of entertainment options include Hollywood blockbusters, arthouse films, comedies, and classics, as well as a full selection of TV series, documentaries, and quick-view options.

Tasman and Pacific Island services

You can choose from a range of seating options on our Tasman and Pacific Islands flights using 'Seats to Suit'. On these flights your inflight entertainment will be based on your seating option. The Works and Works Deluxe offers the complete entertainment package including movies, TV, music and games. Seat and Seat + Bag travellers can have TV, music and games included in their ticket, and can purchase movies for NZD $10 from their seat using a credit card, Airpoints Dollars™ or prepaid voucher.

New Zealand domestic flights

Passengers receive a free "KiaOra" magazine, a monthly publication covering travel, sport, business and lifestyle, on all domestic flights. An inflight quiz is also available through the entertainment system on domestic jet services.

You can bring on board your own entertainment such as books, magazines, portable video or gaming devices. Just make sure they meet our safety and size requirements and don't interfere with the comfort of other passengers.
