Meet some of us

Air New Zealand's people are unique!

We're exceptionally proud of our country's unique cultural diversity, something we look to reflect in the people working within our business. We celebrate our people, whether it's for long service to Air New Zealand, or for personal or professional achievements and we grow together. In fact, our people have told us that it's not just the colleagues and friends that make Air New Zealand such a good place to be, it's also the changing nature of the airline, and the evolving culture across our business.
