Air New Zealand stated (17-Sep-2021) following a month of constrained trading it remains unclear how long coronavirus Alert Levels, the suspension of trans-Tasman quarantine free travel and associated travel restrictions will continue, as well as how demand will recover when the restrictions are lifted.

  • Monthly impact of nationwide New Zealand Level 3 or 4 travel restrictions is approximately NZD45 million (USD31.8 million) to NZD55 million (USD38.9 million), including the benefit of any wage subsidies received;
  • Monthly impact of an Auckland only Level 3 or 4 travel restriction, with the rest of New Zealand operating at Level 1 or 2 is approximately NZD25 million (USD17.7 million) to NZD35 million (USD24.8 million), including the benefit of any wage subsidy;
  • Monthly impact of suspension of New Zealand to Australia travel is approximately NZD20 million (USD14.1 million) to NZD25 million (USD17.7 million).
