Air New Zealand operations in and out of Los Angeles are beginning to return to normal following today’s shooting incident at the airport and the lifting of the FAA’s ban on Los Angeles bound aircraft departing their points of origin.
Passengers on flights NZ2 and NZ6 from Auckland have arrived in Los Angeles and processed through customs.
NZ2 now continues through to London and check-in is underway for passengers joining this service in Los Angeles. The flight has been re-timed to a 1900 local time departure (a delay of two hours) to allow passengers to get to the airport through the congestion surrounding the airport.
NZ5 and NZ1 from Los Angeles to Auckland are both due to depart at 2300 this evening.
