Changes to New Zealand's COVID-19 Protection Framework

Following the New Zealand Government's announcement removing COVID-19 Protection Framework restrictions, customers are no longer required to wear a face covering on any Air New Zealand operated flights. You can, however, continue to wear a face covering if you wish.

Masks may still be required on some outbound international services depending on the requirements of the arrival country. For details about your destination, please visit our COVID-19 hub.

Visit the New Zealand Government's Unite Against COVID-19 website to see how the removal of New Zealand’s COVID-19 Protection Framework may affect your overall travel requirements.

If you have any questions about the New Zealand Traveller Declaration, visit the NZTD website, or reach out to the NZTD Contact Centre.
