Engineering Support

A business quite like any other

Air New Zealand Technical Operations is one of the country’s largest engineering-based businesses and like any other large enterprise, it needs a host of services to support the teams working directly for our customers.


Once Engineering has worked out a maintenance plan covering airframe engines and components, a team of planners work out the details, scheduling checks and producing the hundreds of job cards issued to the hangar covering every task to ensure a seamless flow of work is carried out in the right order to dovetail with other work right across the aircraft.

General mechanical engineering

Technical Operations also has opportunities for Mechanical Engineers without aviation certification. Our subsidiary Air New Zealand Gas Turbines (ANZGT) overhauls gas turbine engines used around the world to power ships, ferries, oil and gas platforms and electricity co-generation plants. These engines are a variant of the same core GE gas turbine jet engines, and ANZGT uses its jet engine overhaul experience and tooling to overhaul these marine and industrial powerplants.

If you have experience in mechanical engineering, either on the tools or in support functions, ANZGT or Air New Zealand’s other engine overhaul facilities could be an option for you.

And everything else

We also have a significant Facilities Management team maintaining and optimising millions of dollars worth of plant and facilities; an IT team supporting our SAP enterprise system for aircraft maintenance and also corporate IT functions and HR.

We aim to attract the best support talent from other industries to apply their expertise and fresh ideas to continually improving our business. If you have skills in these areas, take them to the next level with Air New Zealand.
