Confirmation the Air New Zealand CEO has been interested in joining National for quite some time. 

Christopher Luxon has resigned after seven years in the top job, and there's speculation he will join National.

Former National Party President Michelle Boag told Heather du Plessis-Allan Luxon has been inquiring about National for the past few years.

"I knows he has spoken with former, senior members of the National Party in the last couple of years, about what it would be like to work in parliament."

Boag believes Luxon will mostly likely put himself put himself forward to a list position, instead of a seat.

"Being an electorate MP is much more hard work. If you get a high place on the list and are going to be a senior member of the party, you will be pretty safe."
