With all the changes with lounges I double checked the Christchurch accessibility for the NZ lounge for a Velocity Platinum travelling internationally and only the domestic one is showing. Given they do have an international lounge after immigration I'm wondering if it's just been missed or for some reason this is the only international AirNZ lounge on NZ soil not included in the alliance.
"ThereÃ¢â¬â¢s also no change to benefits or lounge access for Velocity Gold and Platinum cardholders when travelling with Air New Zealand from any city Ã¢â¬â so if youÃ¢â¬â¢re jetting from Auckland to the USA with Air New Zealand in economy or premium economy, for example, youÃ¢â¬â¢re still clear to visit the Air NZ lounge.
Paid-up Virgin Australia lounge members arenÃ¢â¬â¢t affected at all by these revisions and can continue visiting Air New Zealand lounges in Australia and New Zealand prior to Virgin Australia trans-Tasman flights".
