  • Air New Zealand restricts ticket sales as it battles fuel shortage at Auckland

    Air New Zealand says it has taken the rare step of restricting ticket sales as part of its response to the ongoing fuel crisis at Auckland Airport.

    The airport has been operating with a reduced fuel supply since Sunday after a pipeline which connects a refinery to the Wiri Oil Services facility near the airport was damaged.

    With Auckland as its biggest hub, Air New Zealand has been the most affected of all airlines serving the country’s largest international gateway by the supply being reduced to only 30 per cent of normal usage.

    The Star Alliance member has cancelled a host of domestic and trans-Tasman flights and taken on more fuel on domestic jet services from Wellington or Christchurch to limit refuelling in Auckland.

    Meanwhile, a number of its long-haul services have been operating with a refuelling stop at selected airports Australia or the Pacific.
