A clear picture of the impact Covid-19 is having on Air New Zealand. 

The airline's just posted a statutory loss before taxation of $376 million for the six months to December 31. 

Chief executive Greg Foran told Mike Hosking fear's been impacting bookings since the Omicron outbreak began. 

He says schedules have been adjusted, with about a third of customers saying they don't want to travel at the moment. 

And Auckland International Airport has announced its third consecutive half-year underlying loss.
