Air New Zealand Resumes Quarantine-Free Flights to Sydney and Melbourne

Air New Zealand has resumed quarantine-free flights to Sydney and Melbourne today following an update from the Australian Government. Quarantine-free flights to Brisbane remain suspended until 20 March at the request of the Queensland Government.

Air New Zealand Chief Customer and Sales Officer Leanne Geraghty says the airline is operating three Auckland-Sydney services and two Auckland-Melbourne services today to enable customers impacted by the travel suspension to get to where they need to go.

“We’ll also be resuming flights between Sydney and Norfolk Island from 19 March. Because aircrew are currently unable to operate domestic services in Queensland without completing a 14 day quarantine period, this will impact our ability to operate between Brisbane and Norfolk Island while the restrictions on Queensland travel remain in place.

“We are pleased to be able to connect our customers with these Australian destinations once again and look forward to resuming quarantine-free flights to Brisbane in due course.”

Customers travelling to Melbourne are required by the Victoria State Government to apply for a Victoria Travel Permit prior to check-in. Those commencing their air travel in Auckland and travelling to Melbourne or Sydney are required to carry out a COVID-19 test within 72 hours after their arrival and remain in self-isolation until a negative test result is received.
