Air New Zealand and Z pump more value to Airpoints customers
From today, Air New Zealand Airpoints™ members will receive the benefit of Z’s Pumped fuel discount programme, receiving six cents off per litre when they fuel up at Z petrol stations nationwide, the first time members can enjoy a discount on a product as a direct result of their membership.
The airline first partnered with Z Energy in 2016, giving Airpoints members the opportunity to earn Airpoints Dollars at the pump, with members purchasing hundreds of millions of litres of fuel to date.
Airpoints members will continue to earn Airpoints Dollars on their fuel spend at Z as well as now enjoying a lower fuel bill with Pumped fuel discounts (regardless of their total spend).
Air New Zealand Regional General Manager Loyalty & Customer Direct Jeremy O’Brien says the airline has been exploring ways to drive greater value for its members.
“In recent years we’ve been focused on growing the number of partners in our retail coalition, giving our members a range of ways to earn and spend Airpoints Dollars. Today’s announcement is exciting, it’s the first time Airpoints members can receive a discount as a result of being part of our programme,” says Mr O’Brien.
Jane Anthony, Z’s GM Marketing says, “Z has a strong partnership with Airpoints and we’re excited to strengthen that by offering Airpoints cardholders a new way to reduce their fuel costs through their local Z service station. Z’s Pumped programme will allow Airpoints members to simply scan their card to save on fuel and continue to earn rewards every day.”
Air New Zealand and Z look forward to their customers making the most of Pumped fuel discounts and will continue to look at ways to improve the customer offer in the future.
