Our intern story.

At Air New Zealand we are focused on supercharging New Zealand’s success. Our summer Digital Intern Programme is in its fourth year. The interns support us on projects to enhance New Zealand’s success, as well as providing the opportunity for you to kick start your career.

Digital at Air New Zealand is on a transformational journey and we are excited to invite you to be part of it. Recruitment is a two-way process of discovering more about you and sharing information on Air New Zealand’s vision and your place in it.

This year we are focusing on Software Engineering and are looking for interns within this passionate and dedicated team. 

Software Engineering

Our Software Engineering team consists of developers, quality assurance, architects, systems and support analysts working in matrix product teams to build, maintain and enhance a wide variety of apps and systems that enhance our customer and employee experience. Many of these are publicly accessible, well known and widely used, and all contribute to the Air New Zealand’s unique brand.
