Air New Zealand are the national flag carrier of New Zealand and regularly fly pets from UK to New Zealand and back again. The flights they offer are one of the shortest ways to fly pets from UK to New Zealand. The flights stop in either Los Angeles, USA or Hong Kong. The benefit is that the stop is a short stop and so the pets do not have to be moved off the aircraft and are checked and watered at the stopover.

The main destination for pets on the Air New Zealand flights is Auckland, New Zealand as the Christchurch route is better served by Singapore Airlines. All pets landing in New Zealand now have to serve 10 days quarantine on landing in either Auckland or Christchurch.
