Passenger Unaccompanied baggage

Important note for shipments originating in the United States only:

Due to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations, we are only able to accept air cargo shipments from TSA approved Freight Forwarders and those whom are both a member of IATA and have an account with Air New Zealand Cargo.

This means we are unable to accept "excess baggage" as cargo from Air New Zealand passengers or other types of freight that are not channeled through an approved freight forwarder or could be designated as 'unknown shipper'.  

Information on the TSA Known Shipper Management Program can be found here.
