Air New Zealand resumes Auckland flights, but fewer seats to share

Air New Zealand will be back flying domestic routes from Auckland from Monday 31 August, as the region moves to Alert Level 2. Still, ongoing distancing measures mean there will be up to 50 per cent fewer seats.

The carrier has been operating a reduced schedule from Auckland Airport’s domestic terminal while the city has been under Level 3 measures. However as Auckland rejoins the rest of the country flight schedules will be resuming as normal, albeit with physical distancing in place.

Auckland Airport’s Air New Zealand lounges will be reopened from Monday. The airline says masks will be provided at these lounges but capacity will be capped at 100 guests at a time, with tracing measures in place.

The airline asks customers travelling anywhere on the network to wear a face covering while onboard. Air New Zealand asks passengers to bring their own masks, but says spares will be provided before boarding.
