Air New Zealand Limited (ASX:AIZ, NZX: AIR, Air New Zealand) is a scheduled passenger airline based in Auckland, New Zealand, and the national flag carrier. Its focus is on Australasia and the South Pacific, with services to Europe, North America and Asia, and it is a Star Alliance member. Its main hub is Auckland Airport. Air New Zealand began as TEAL (Tasman Empire Airways Limited) in 1940, operating Short Empire flying boats on trans-Tasman routes. With the introduction of the DC8-52 in 1965, TEAL became Air New Zealand. In 1978, the domestic National Airways Corporation (NAC) and its subsidiary Safe Air were merged into Air New Zealand to form a single national airline. The Air New Zealand Māori symbol is a koru. It is a stylised representation of a fern frond unfolding, and signifies new life, growth and renewal. The koru was used on the prows of the early Polynesian canoes that sailed the Pacific with its many islands.

The koru was first applied to the tail of Air New Zealand aircraft with the arrival of the DC-10 in 1973, and has remained ever since. The current aircraft livery was adopted in 1997. The koru also appears on the Air New Zealand house flag (see illustration) and flies at international airports such as Los Angeles Airport.

A redesigned logo was unveiled on March 21, 2006. The new logo has been introduced in all advertising, signage and stationery and on planes.
lyrics:
Maku e ringiringi
Kiaku roimata
Ara e ahu ana
Ki te kainga
(I will water with my tears the trails that lead to home)
---------------------
Kai te manatu au
Mo te whenua
O oku tipuna
Ki te kainga
(I am homesick for the land of
my forebearers)
------------------
Ka tawhiti atu
te kaiwhakamarie
I toku wairua
Aue hoki mai
(The comforter of my soul is
far from me -
come back)
--------------------
Kaore e taaea
Te huna I aku
Manako mo te
Kainga aue
(I could not hide my longing
for home)
-----------------
E awhi reinga
E awhi taua
(We embrace)
------------
