Air New Zealand is again under investigation over the credit card fees it charges passengers.

It is the second time in a year the airline has come under scrutiny for fees that could breach the Fair Trading Act.

The airline charges a $4 processing fee on all domestic bookings made by credit or debit card. That rises to $6 for trans-Tasman and short-haul Pacific flights, $12 for a trip to Bali, and $17.50 for all other international fares.

It charges the fees per person per flight. However, the airline pays only about 1 per cent of the total flights package to the processing bank.

The Commerce Commission probed Air NZ in early 2012, after complaints about its surcharges, but decided not to take further action. It is now relaunching the investigation. Fairfax NZ
