Flights from Auckland to the other main cities have continued as normal since the Auckland region moved to Covid-19 alert level 3 and the rest of New Zealand moved to alert level 2 on Sunday.
Some 108 flights departed Auckland Airport on Monday, including 15 to Christchurch, 14 to Wellington and seven to Queenstown.
Those travelling during the weekend included about 2000 Aucklanders who were in Christchurch for the city’s largest outdoor music festival, Electric Avenue.
