Inflight entertainment

Find out what entertainment is on board Air New Zealand flights.

Enjoy hours of entertainment with the latest blockbuster films, music, multi-player games, snacks and much more all from the comfort of your seat. Start your on-demand entertainment system the moment you take your seat with our gate-to-gate entertainment.*

When you fly with Air New Zealand you'll have personal on-demand entertainment screens in each seat back. We offer gate-to-gate inflight entertainment, meaning most passengers can start using their entertainment system as soon as they are on board, right through to when the plane lands. Our range of entertainment options include Hollywood blockbusters, arthouse films, comedies, and classics, as well as a full selection of TV series, documentaries, and quick-view options.

New Zealand domestic flights

Passengers receive a free "Kia Ora" magazine, a monthly publication covering travel, sport, business and lifestyle, on all domestic flights. An inflight quiz is also available through the entertainment system on domestic jet services.

You can bring on board your own entertainment such as books, magazines, portable video or gaming devices. Just make sure they meet our safety and size requirements and don't interfere with the comfort of other passengers.

Some of our content is not suitable for all ages, and details of our classification system can be found below. A parental lock is also available. Air New Zealand will not be responsible for unauthorised access of age-restricted programmes.

Parental guidance recommended 




Parents strongly cautioned - some content may be inappropriate for children under 13 




Restricted - under 17 years requires accompanying parent or adult guardian

* Some seats have monitors stowed in the arm of their seat rather than the back of the seat in front of them. For safety reasons, these monitors must be stowed for taxi, take-off and landing. This means you can still listen to music during these times of the flights, but as your monitor needs to be stowed, you won't be able to watch a movie, etc., until crew advise your screen can be deployed.
