The first tourist flight to the Cook Islands in five months has left Auckland this morning.  

The two-way quarantine free travel bubble has resumed.  

Travellers must be aged over 12, fully vaccinated and have negative pre-departure and on arrival Covid-19 tests.  

Cook Islands Health Secretary Bob Williams told Tim Dower the country has high vaccination rates but has been preparing for positive Covid-19 cases.
