A runway upgrade and Dunedin Airport may delay mail deliveries.

Between tomorrow and March 26, the airport will be closed to evening flights, including a service that normally delivers letters and packages sent using FastPost, BoxLink, international priority letters and parcels and courier items. 

Where possible, New Zealand Post will prioritise these items for earlier transport during the upgrade but there may be delays.

Items that cannot be moved to earlier transport will be trucked from Christchurch to Dunedin, which means they might arrived for processing at the Dunedin mail centre later than usual.

Courier items for Southland and Otago are expected to be delivered on the same day but may be later than usual.

Standard mail should not be affected.
