Air NZ details the 5% remaining overseas scheduled flights

Apr 11, 2020

Air New Zealand is extending the timeframe for its significantly reduced network by a month, with its minimal international operations to continue through to 30 June 2020.

In response to government travel restrictions and low demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the airline earlier announced a limited international network from 30 March to 31 May, to keep air links open for essential travel and cargo movement on key trade routes.

This schedule will now apply through to 30 June 2020. All services are subject to change as governments continue to introduce or change travel and border restrictions. 

Overall international capacity has been reduced by 95 percent from pre-COVID-19 levels.

Due to the large number of schedule changes, customers are strongly encouraged to only contact the airline if they are due to fly within the next 48 hours.
