There will be a call centre fee per person per segment for this service and fare difference if applicable.
(Example: A guest who paid for a return domestic flight from Auckland to Christchurch to fly with AirAsia X, who transfers their AirAsia X ticket to the Sydney-Kuala Lumpur service, can transfer the domestic payment towards a flight from Auckland to Sydney to connect to the AirAsia X service.)
To arrange this transfer, guest will need to contact the Air New Zealand or Jetstar call centre, verify connecting travel on AirAsia X, and arrange for their domestic flight to be transferred to a trans-Tasman flight (and pay any fare difference and the contact service fee).
Guests opting for Jetstar will need to contact Jetstar before 26 March, 2012 with the above details.
