From Morning Report, 7:53 am on 30 January 2023

Auckland Airport's international terminal is up and running again after extreme flooding on the weekend. 

More than 2000 people stayed overnight at the airport's terminals after flights were delayed and cancelled, including an 81-year-old man who slept on the stone floor.  

Passengers have been complaining bitterly about the airport management's poor communication and planning. 

Auckland Airport chief executive Carrie Hurihanganui spoke to Corin Dann.
