The travellers had a health screening at Bangkok Airport after their Thai Airways flight TG492 arrived from Auckland on Wednesday, according to the Bangkok Post.

Two other passengers on board were Kiwis, one of which has shared an update on Twitter. 

Wayne Hay last night said he has had the first of two Covid-19 tests and that so far his temperature has remained normal.

It comes as New Zealand works to tighten up quarantine and managed isolation protocols following a number of mishaps.
