Auckland Airport's departing CEO is calling for an end to MIQ and clear re-opening dates.  

Adrian Littlewood says with high vaccination rates things have changed and it's time to get Kiwis home before Christmas.  

He told Mike Hosking the industry needs clarity. 

Littlewood said international airlines are making their calls globally and without that certainty it's very hard for them to allocate fleets to New Zealand - which is a risk for our country. 

“I think it’s time for MIQ to move on and get those Kiwis home before Christmas.”
