Air New Zealand reopened a number of airport
The airline's lounges at Auckland Regional,
Wellington Domestic and Christchurch Domestic, along with regional
lounges in Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier, New Plymouth, Palmerston
North, Nelson, Queenstown, Dunedin and Invercargill have all
But it's not business as usual, as Air New
Zealand's General Manager Customer Experience, Nikki Goodman,
explains, "In line with government regulations, our self-service
buffet won't be available. Instead, customers will be required to
be seated once they enter the lounge and there'll be table service
with packaged snacks on offer, as well as beverages. We know those
travelling will be looking forward to once again being able to
order a flat white before they fly and in lounges with a barista,
customers will be given the choice of ordering through the Air New
Zealand app, or through their server."
The lounges will not be serving alcohol and there will also be a maximum of 100 people able to
be in any lounge which would normally cater for more than that.
Auckland Domestic lounge remains closed as it
is currently being refurbished.
Air New Zealand's valet parking also resumed today.
