The Antarctic polar blast that's hitting New Zealand at the moment is causing disruption to Air New Zealand's services across much of the South Island.
Dunedin, Invercargill and Queenstown are experiencing strong winds, low cloud and snow causing cancellations into and out of these regions. The challenging weather is expected to last through to Tuesday and the airline is working through recovery flights for impacted customers.
In a statement, Air New Zealand says it strongly encourages those booked to travel on affected flights to transfer their travel to another date by managing their booking online.
The airline says its contact centre is currently experiencing a high volume of calls due to the travel pause with Australia contributing to longer wait times.
Customers booked to travel domestically on Monday are advised to keep an eye on the Air New Zealand arrivals and departures page for the most up to date flight information. If travel is not urgent, customers can opt to hold their fares in credit, which can be done online.
