Construction works at LAX

Due to on-going terminal and construction works at Los Angeles International Airport all airlines may be experiencing take-off delays due to extended taxi times.

Therefore, it is possible that at certain times Air New Zealand may be assigned remote gates that will require ground transport to and from our aircraft on arrival or departure due to resulting terminal congestion. This will not affect check-in times or processing.

Our customers may also expect to experience some delays on arrival and longer than expected take-off times on departure. Customers transiting between the UK and New Zealand on flights NZ1/2 will not be affected. Whilst we appreciate this will be frustrating to some of our customers that may be affected, this is outside of the control of Air New Zealand and is affecting all airlines arriving and departing from LAX
