1 September 2016

Three more businesses join the Air New Zealand Airpoints™ programme

Mitre 10, Tower Insurance and Storage King are the latest businesses to join Airpoints™, giving members even more ways to earn their way to their next flight.

They follow a number of other new partners announced recently, including Mercury, Z, New World, Liquorland, Henry’s, Gilmours and Trents.

Airpoints members can currently earn Airpoints Dollars™ at Mitre 10 and Mitre 10 MEGA stores under Airpoints’ current partnership with Fly Buys. Mitre 10’s decision to partner directly with Airpoints will make it easier for members to understand how to earn Airpoints Dollars in the future and create further opportunities for customers.

Storage King, Australasia’s largest self-storage business has joined the Airpoints for Business programme and is now offering Airpoints Dollars to businesses signing a new storage contract and on a range of packaging materials.

Tower Insurance will be offering Airpoints Dollars on its car, house and contents insurance in the near future.

Airpoints members now have a choice of 55 businesses where they can earn Airpoints Dollars.

Air New Zealand General Manager Loyalty Mark Street says the growth of Airpoints’ significant network of partners has been a strategic focus for some time.

“We have added 29 new businesses to our coalition over the past two years, which has delivered unparalleled opportunities for members to earn Airpoints Dollars on everything from their weekly food shop to the purchase of a new car.

“This is reflected in an additional 33 million Airpoints Dollars earned by members over the past 12 months compared to the prior year, resulting in a staggering 860,000 flights taken by members using their Airpoints Dollars, up more than 100,000 on the year before.”

Dave Elliott, Mitre 10 General Manager Marketing says Airpoints Dollars are a great way for Mitre 10 to keep building its relationships with customers.

“As a 100% New Zealand owned Co-operative we are excited to take our place to directly offer the benefits of Airpoints to our customers, including the ability to earn and spend Airpoints Dollars across a fantastic family of New Zealand businesses.”

Richard Harding, CEO Tower Insurance, is excited to begin rewarding customers with Airpoints Dollars.

“Tower’s customers are incredibly loyal and this partnership is a great way for us to thank them for choosing Tower,” he said. “I’m pleased that we can now reward those customers who trust Tower to insure what’s important to them.”
