Air New Zealand's chief executive has today dismissed claims he was considering standing for National in the Botany seat.
Newstalk ZB political editor Barry Soper said he believed Christopher Luxon could be an option for National in the Botany seat.
But, Luxon this afternoon told the Herald he ''remained committed to Air New Zealand,'' where he has been chief executive since 2013.
Air New Zealand's chairman Tony Carter also dismissed claims Luxon was considering a move to politics.

Carter told NewstalkZB Luxon had also told him he remained committed to the company.
There had previously been speculation about Luxon standing as a National candidate. Last year he laughed off conjecture he would put his hat in the ring for the party in the Northcote by-election.
It was thought National list MP Alfred Ngaro was going to leave the party to head a new religious party and contest the Botany seat.
But Ngaro has now confirmed he'll instead stay with National.
