The travel bubble set up between New Zealand and Australia has been suspended for two months while Australia deals with a surge in COVID-19 cases.
From 11:59pm tonight (the 23rd of July), Australians can no fly to New Zealand on quarantine-free flights, and New Zealanders returning will face a range of quarantine and self-isolation measures.
The new measures will be in place for at least the next 8 weeks.
There was already a pause on travel to and from NSW, Victoria and South Australia, but the whole of Australia is now impacted by the decision.
The decision comes at a time when airline have been forced to cut services even further due to a reduction in arrival caps. American Airlines has pulled out of Australia all together until October. Other airlines could soon follow.
