Air New Zealand operations in to and out of Los Angeles are expected to be impacted by the shooting incident at the United States airport this morning.
The terminal from which Air New Zealand operates has been evacuated and traffic around the airport is at a standstill.
NZ6 from Auckland to Los Angeles has recently landed, NZ2 from Auckland to Los Angeles is due in later this morning and NZ1 from London to Los Angeles is due in this evening. At this stage passengers will be disembarked at an alternate terminal, but again disruption is likely.
Air New Zealand has three further flights due to depart Los Angeles today:
- NZ2 from Los Angeles to London due to depart 1700 local time
- NZ5 from Los Angeles to Auckland due to depart 2300 local time
- NZ1 from Los Angeles to Auckland due to depart 2300 local time
