Air New Zealand has added an additional daily service between Kerikeri and Wellington to help connect Northland to the rest of the country.
The airline will run a direct daily service between Kerikeri and the capital using its Q300 turboprop fleet.
The airline is already operating a daily service between Auckland and Whangarei.
Air NZ Chief Customer and Sales Officer Leanne Geraghty says that while Auckland is at Alert Level 3 and above, these services will operate to enable a direct link to Northland from another city.
"We want to help keep our northern neighbours connected to the rest of the country. With transit rules through different alert level regions limiting domestic leisure travel, this service will go a long way in supporting Northland and its local economy and community.
"At this stage, the flights are available from 13 September through to 21 September. We will of course look to extend this should Auckland stay in Alert Level 3 or above for longer," Geraghty said.
The schedule for the Wellington – Kerikeri flights is as follows:
Departs Wellington at 10:30am - Arriving in Kerikeri at 12:10pm
Departs Kerikeri at 13:15pm - Arriving in Wellington at 14:55pm
