Chartered air freight options

Flights are chartered to deliver freight requirements not met by scheduled services.

For exporters

Our Flight availability section below is regularly updated with current air freight capacity to international destinations, and contact details for the relevant freight forwarder. In the first instance, exporters should contact their preferred freight forwarder.

If you have any other enquiries around freight, please refer to the FAQ section or contact myfreight@nzte.govt.nz setting out:

  • Type of goods

  • Quantity

  • Departure point

  • Overseas destination port and frequency

  • Why air freight is required

  • Details of your current freight forwarder

For inbound freight

For significant import volumes, we encourage you to contact Air New Zealand directly at alex.larsen@airnz.co.nz.

Government-coordinated inbound freight has been advised to contact myfreight@nzte.govt.nz.

For all other inbound freight, including high-priority goods such as medical supplies and materials critical to your supply chain, contact myfreight@nzte.govt.nz and we will forward this onto a relevant freight forwarder.
