Flying from the Cook Islands to New Zealand

Our services from Rarotonga to Auckland will continue to operate as scheduled to bring you home.

Upon arrival in Auckland, you can return home as normal. This includes having someone pick you up from the airport, or travelling on a domestic flight. As a result of our reduced domestic schedule, your domestic flight may be changed, we will do our best to get you home. We are working through your travel options and will notify you once we have further information about your booking.

For guidance from the New Zealand Government on domestic travel under COVID-19 Alert Levels, please see here.
