COVID-19: information for visitors to Hamilton Airport

What does this mean for Hamilton Airport users?

  • Our airport is open to the public, and planes are going out as scheduled.
  • You no longer require proof of vaccination or a COVID test to travel domestically.  See your airline's website for specific information.  
  • Under the ORANGE setting you are required to wear a face mask onboard the plane and on all public transport.  You must also wear a mask while in the terminal.
  • Propeller Airport Cafe is open.  Our hours are 9.15am to 5.00pm. Prior to 9.15am, we have a coffee cart onsite for your coffee and food needs.  
  • Our Terminal Resilience Project is underway, and you will see and hear some evidence of this within the terminal.  Construction means we have to do things a little differently in terms of Check In and Arrivals/Departures.  Visit here for details.

If you require further information, please visit the government’s COVID website here. **

COVID-19 precautions and information:    

  • Face masks/coverings are  required on all domestic flights in New Zealand.  Please refer to your airline for their protocols regarding domestic travel under the COVID-19 Protection Framework.

  • To keep everyone safe, please do not travel, or enter our terminal if you are feeling unwell, are being tested for COVID-19 or if you need to self-isolate.
  • We have a robust cleaning and sanitising process – particularly around high touch areas such as check-in counters, touch screens, hand rails, door handles etc.  Of course it is important you take care of your own personal hygiene as well, so please:
    • Wash your hands well
    • Sanitise often
    • Avoid touching your face
    • Cough/sneeze into your elbow
    • Practice physical distancing
