With travel restrictions still in place around the world, Scott Carr, Air New Zealand’s General Manager for Networks, said that the carrier has adapted its international schedule through June “to better reflect the low-demand environment we are currently operating in.” The emphasis for the moment is keeping air links open for essential travel and cargo movement on key routes, while giving New Zealanders overseas the opportunity to return to one of the few countries that has successfully kept the virus at bay.

“We understand these are very uncertain times and it can be tricky for people looking to get home with a lot of things needing to line up including flights, testing, and managed isolation bookings,” Carr added. “We feel a responsibility to ensure Kiwis can come home and are doing our best to make this happen as smoothly as possible.”

Air New Zealand has now released its international schedule from March 28 to June 30, 2021, and more details can be seen in the tables below. Although Wellington is still keen to open a two-way “travel bubble” with Australia by April, both sides have yet to iron out further details, including a definitive start date. For that reason, there will be no changes in frequencies for trans-Tasman services.

Route Frequency (of return service)
Auckland – Nadi Weekly
Auckland – Niue Weekly
