Covid-19 Travel Policy Across Our Network

Covid-19 Vaccination Policy

Barrier Air prides itself with providing a premium, safe, and reliable service. Your safety has always been our number one priority.

To give you confidence when you travel this summer, we are adding a new layer of assurance for our customers travelling across our network. 

From the commencement of the New Zealand Government traffic light system (which will be in early-mid December 2021) travellers across the Barrier Air route network will need to have one of the following:

  • Proof you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Passengers can show proof from the New Zealand Government’s My Vaccine Pass when it is available and can be presented digitally or as a hard copy. 
  • Or a negative Covid-19 test result, taken within 72 hours of your departing flight. This can be in the form of a text message that complies to the accepted form, or a letter from the Ministry of Health.

You will need to show your proof of vaccine, or a negative covid test during the check-in process to our team. This would be either via the My Vaccine Pass app, or a letter from a Medical Professional.

This requirement applies to all customers 12 years of age and over to provide either a negative test or proof of vaccine. 

Note that the Barrier Air vaccination policy does not apply to children below the age of 12 years*
* There will be a grace period of 3 months to allow for children recently turned 12 years to get both vaccinations.

Medical Exemptions 

If you have an approved medical exemption for the Covid-19 Vaccine we require a negative test to be taken within 72 hours of your departure time. 

 

We also encourage the following procedures when traveling with Barrier Air

Our policy will be reviewed regularly to meet the safety requirements of our passengers, to keep our people safe and to adapt and respond to changes in the Airline environment. We will also respond to any government mandates, or consider new technologies as required.
