Will New Plymouth Airport be open at alert level 2?
Yes we will be open and operating however it will look a little different than it did pre COVID 19.
There will be signage that we require all passengers to follow when in the terminal.  Each passenger will be required to maintain a 1 meter distance from other passengers at all time.  Please can we ask that children are supervised at all times to ensure social distancing is maintained.

As of Tuesday 2 June 2020, visitors and friends and family of travellers will be able to enter the terminal building again. Entry to the terminal can only be made through the departures doors closest to Air New Zealand check-in.

All visitors, will need to check in using the airport’s QR code posters and the NZ Government Contact Tracing app, we recommend that you download the app prior to arriving at the airport. You will also be able to sign in using the Airport’s Sign In Register, which is positioned at the departures entry.
Travelling passengers are also encouraged to download and utilise the NZ Government Contact tracing app to sign in at the airport.

The airport has a responsibility to the MOH to maintain a contract tracing system to assist in addressing any risk of exposure to COVID-19, therefore, visitors who are unwilling to sign in using either method will be refused entry to the terminal.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these times, we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
