Onboard Social Distancing

The New Zealand Government has announced the COVID-19 Alert System and we are supporting this guidance through the implementation of social distancing. As a result, customers may notice we have changed their choice of seat to allow additional space around them.

If travelling on our regional ATR or Q300 aircraft, we are aiming to allocate window seats first with no-one seated in the adjacent seat. Onboard our domestic jet aircraft, we will endeavour for middle seats remain unoccupied.

Wherever possible, we will continue to seat families, and customers travelling in the same booking, together.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during this challenging time.
