Suspension of Air New Zealand services between Auckland and Norfolk Island (NLK)

Declining customer demand from New Zealand means Air New Zealand is consolidating its services to Norfolk Island. From May 2017 it will no longer offer a direct service from Auckland, but will continue to offer services from Sydney and Brisbane. 

Air New Zealand currently operates just once a week between Auckland and Norfolk Island.

The airline will continue to service the island with a core schedule of two flights a week from Sydney and one per week from Brisbane. This increases to five services a week during peak travel periods which will now extend from September to April.

The last direct service between Auckland and Norfolk Island will be Sunday 21 May 2017 

If you hold a ticket for travel between Auckland and Norfolk Island after Sunday 21 May 2017 issued on or before Friday 16 December 2016 you may choose from the following options. 

  1. Obtain a full refund of your ticket regardless of the original fare conditions.

  3. Change to travel to an alternative Air New Zealand destination without penalty. Please note that you will be required to pay any additional fare costs and taxes that may apply.
