Air New Zealand said customers with Wellington flights were strongly recommended to defer non-urgent travel.

The airline is also offering fare flexibility for the next three days, where customers with cancelled flights will have the option to transfer their booking to another date, or hold the fare value in credit for up to 12 months for future travel.

The airline said passengers should subscribe to its 'travel alert' service to receive ongoing updates.
