Air New Zealand UK Service Update

Air New Zealand UK Service Update

Air New Zealand confirms that flight NZ 1 departed Heathrow Airport, London early this morning (early evening UK time) on its way to Auckland via Los Angeles.

The flight was delayed almost three hours due to heightened security measures implemented since yesterday in London and US international airports.
Air New Zealand’s scheduled inbound flight to London NZ 2 is due to arrive shortly in Los Angeles.

As advised to all customers yesterday, continuing flight delays are possible due to these increased security measures.

Although there is indication that the situation will improve, we still would recommend that customers travelling to and from London monitor arrival and departure times on the Air New Zealand website or to stay in contact with their booking agent, said John Whittaker, Operations Manager International Airline.

“Likewise, customers travelling from Heathrow to Los Angeles or Auckland should plan to arrive for their flight earlier than usual because it is likely checking in could take longer than normal.”
