Starting Thursday, people will be able to fly with Air New Zealand from Aotearoa to Brisbane and not have to quarantine on arrival.
The announcement comes after Queensland’s Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced in December the state was reopening its borders to Kiwis following them being shut due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, New Zealanders wanting to holiday in Queensland have to remember they are still required to quarantine upon arrival back in Aotearoa.
Air NZ’s first quarantine-free Auckland-Brisbane flight, NZ147, will depart at 7:40am on Thursday. Passengers onboard must complete an Australia Travel Declaration form stating they have been in New Zealand for the preceding 14 days.
