Jetstar Start Flying in New Zealand Again After Suspension

Jetstar are set to resume their flights across New Zealand this week, after a four week suspension following further outbreaks of the Covid-19 virus in Auckland. 

The suspension officially ends on the 17th September, which is just in time for school holidays. 

The airline announced that while masks will be mandatory to abide by government regulations, they will not be keeping middle seats empty. 

Jetstar will be back running around 60% of it’s usual, pre-Covid schedule, covering six domestic routes. 

Gareth Evans, the Jetstar chief executive, is hopeful the return to domestic travel will be met with excitement (and plenty of bookings). 

 “The bounce back in demand following our previous suspension was really strong. We know Kiwis are excited about getting back in the air to visit loved ones or discover a new part of this incredible country.” 

 He also thanked customers for their patience during the suspension. 

 Jetstar passengers will also have access to ‘Fly Well’ packs at the gate and upon boarding, which include sanitising wipes and masks. 

Jetstar will make 'Fly Well' packs available to all customers when travelling. 

 Air New Zealand is also celebrating the reopening of domestic travel, with thousands of seats at discounted prices across their network.
