Flight crews on high risk routes will have to return a negative covid test before they can return to work or the community, under a new government plan.

And all air crews and airport workers will be regularly tested even if they have no Covid symptoms under a new government testing plan.

The Minister of Health, David Clark, has released the plan on Tuesday afternoon.
