Cuisine and wine

Because relaxing over a good meal is one of life's great pleasures, we've designed our menus to reflect the fresh, innovative cuisine of New Zealand.

Our menus are designed by our consultant chefs and wine experts.

We've temporarily changed our inflight services to support physical distancing following the impact of COVID-19. Find out about this change and other COVID-19 updates.
