Air New Zealand is making Covid-19 vaccination or testing compulsory for domestic flights.  

From mid-December you'll need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours before checking in.  

The airline has already announced international flyers will need to be fully vaccinated from February.  

Air New Zealand chief executive Greg Foran told Mike Hosking he expects some people with disagree with the decision. 

“Overwhelmingly, the majority of our customers that we surveyed – about 85% - said please get on and do this.” 

He said they're working with the company creating the My Vaccine Pass to integrate vaccine data into their travel app.
