Air New Zealand will resume their flights to Sydney and Melbourne in Australia. Quarantine-free flights to Brisbane remain suspended until March 20, however.

Leanne Geraghty, Air New Zealand’s Chief Customer and Sales Officer, says the operations will continue with three services from Auckland-Sydney and two from Auckland-Melbourne.

“We’ll be resuming flights between Sydney and Norfolk Island from 19 March. Because aircrew is 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,” said Ms Geraghty.

“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.”

The Victoria State Government requires people who travel to Melbourne to apply for a Travel Permit before checking in. Going from Auckland to Melbourne or Sydney will require people to take a COVID-19 test within 72 hours after their arrival.

Upon arrival, they will have to remain self-isolated until they receive a negative test result.
