All Air NZ customers currently booked on previously scheduled services to depart Nadi to Auckland are requested to contact Air NZ directly with their booking reference.
At this stage, there are no Air NZ commercial options available after Sunday 29 March due to the decision of the Fiji Government to close Nadi Airport.
