Air New Zealand has invited pop star Taylor Swift to feature in its next in-flight safety video.

The airline posted an image of Swift next to the stars of its previous videos, and urged the 25-year-old to consider starring in the next instalment.

"It was great to see Taylor Swift exploring some of what our beautiful country has to offer on social media earlier today and we thought we would take the opportunity to invite her to star in one of our safety videos," an Air New Zealand spokeswoman said.

"We can't wait to hear what she has to say."


Air New Zealand has previously had Bear Grylls, the All Blacks, pro surfers and the polarising "Rico" character star in its safety videos.

Hey Taylor Swift – Once you've shaken off that rogue bug and done shooting your music video, how about starring in our next safety video? :)

Swift has shared images of her Kiwi holiday with her 56.9 million Instagram fans, and her visit attracted extensive media and social media coverage.

A picture of her at a South Island lake was "favourited" on Instagram at least 1 million times.

Conservationists accused Swift of endangering baby dotterel birds while filming near Auckland but Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (Ateed) said Swift's film crew was not near the dotterel site.

Local film company Cherokee Films disputed any dotterels were harmed but offered to make a donation to the breeding programme.

Swift is understood to have left New Zealand for Queensland's Whitsunday Islands.

The Daily Telegraph in Sydney said Swift was expected to fly her friends over, including singer Selena Gomez and Victoria's Secret model Karlie Kloss, for a birthday party on Hamilton Island.

Swift turns 26 on December 13.
