Support for the official Air New Zealand Windows Phone app has been discontinued. The app can still be downloaded from the Windows Store but functionality is now extremely limited and any mention of it has been removed from the Air New Zealand website.
A user on Reddit called the company and was told that support for the app was discontinued due to the low number of active users. Here’s the official description for the now, no longer supported, Air New Zealand app:
With mPass on your mobile phone you can: View up to date details of all your flight bookings. View your Airpoints including current balance and status. Go straight to the gate when travelling within New Zealand without bags. mPass acts as an electronic boarding pass.
The mPass boarding pass is also recognised by Air New Zealand airport kiosks. Just scan your mPass boarding pass to collect baggage tags when travelling domestically with bags. If you’re a Koru member, scan your mPass boarding pass for entry to the Koru Lounge.
