6. Request to passengers

Face coverings and masks are no longer required on Air New Zealand operated flights, following the New Zealand Government's announcement removing mask mandates. You're still welcome to wear your own face mask, and we will continue to make masks available. Hand sanitiser is also available onboard for both crew and customers to use.

Face mask is still required when you are at the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

Please note: masks may still be required on some international flights, depending on the destination's mask requirement.

We wish to thank you for your continued support and co-operation during this period.
