Airlines wrestle with managed isolation pressures

From Nine To Noon, 9:07 am on 8 July 2020

Air New Zealand says some international passengers with bookings already made, will be affected by its move to pause bookings for at least the next 3 weeks, and it can't rule out there being further delays on new bookings.  It follows an announcement from the minister in charge of managed isolation, Megan Woods, that there will now be a freeze on New Zealanders who want to come home  but haven't yet booked a flight. The Board of Airline Representatives NZ has also  issued a statement saying there is a need for a structured process to manage quarantine, so airlines can set their schedules with confidence. Megan Woods,  discusses with Kathryn Ryan.
