While we are in Alert Level 3, people will need to get home, be it locally or throughout the country. We have asked all air transport providers to ensure social distancing for that period.

However, from 23:59 tonight, Wednesday 25 March, 2020, we will be moving to air travel only applying to the transport of people undertaking essential services and the transport of freight.

Visitors and tourists can use domestic air travel to proceed to an international airport.

If you are feeling unwell, particularly with a cough, shortness of breath or fever, or if you’re sneezing or have a runny nose, don’t travel.

If you are on a flight, it is particularly important that you cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow. Where possible carry hand sanitizer and tissues. If it’s possible, sit in a window seat in a row by yourself.
