An MP and business owner on Niue says Air New Zealand isn’t bringing mail and parcel freight on all its weekly flights from Auckland, RNZ reveals. New Zealand’s Covid-19 Response International Air Freight Capacity Scheme is used to finance the flights, guaranteeing five freight flights a week to the Pacific. MP Terry Coe can see no reason why, in the absence of passengers, both mail and freight are being left behind. Coe also added that the mail often arrives three to four weeks old, but is a lifeline for people and businesses on the island. Meanwhile, Air New Zealand spokesperson said their systems show no issues with the service.
