Over the past few days, ‘valued New World customers’ in the North Island have started receiving their first New World Clubcards. Initially launched in the South Island only, the loyalty programme is now rolling out nationally, allowing New Zealanders to choose to collect either Fly Buys points or earn Airports dollars. Additionally, NW shoppers are now able to enjoy instant savings thanks to Club Deals and promotions.

Since last October, Loyalty NZ (which operates Fly Buys) and Air New Zealand have parted ways. Customers, therefore, need to choose which points they would like to earn. According to Stephen England-Hall, chief executive of Loyalty NZ, Fly Buys will soon offer a larger range of travel propositions, which will no longer be limited to Air NZ.
