Travel bubble: Jacinda Ardern shares Wellington Airport's welcome message in wonky Facebook video

No stranger to being on camera, today the Prime Minister tried her hand at camera operator in a drive-by attempt to film Wellington Airport's welcome message to those landing from Australia.

The message which reads 'Welcome whanau' and is painted with white text on a black background.

Jacinda Ardern managed to capture the message while driving past the airport on Monday morning.

"Today the trans-Tasman bubble opens! Take a look at what our visitors will see from above as they land in Wellington (as filmed by me from the back of a car, so not the best angle)," she captioned the video on Facebook.

The post appeared to make many people homesick, with one response saying: "I cannot wait to see this! My heart is bursting at the thought!"

Quarantine-free travel between Australia and New Zealand began at 11:59pm on April 18, with thousands of Kiwis and Australians boarding flights and crossing the Tasman for the first time in over a year.
