Tonga postpones repatriation flight from New Zealand

Tonga’s Government has postponed a repatriation flight that is scheduled to arrive in the country from New Zealand today due to Auckland reverting to lockdown level 3.

The decision was made following a meeting between the National Emergency Management Committee and the committee that oversees Covid-19-related matters.

Repatriation flights expected from Australia and Fiji will arrive as scheduled.

Tonga’s Cabinet confirmed that all repatriates must be quarantined for 21 days.
