Passengers on an Air New Zealand flight have had an extra night in Hawaii after their plane aborted its take-off last night.

The airline said flight NZ9 from Honolulu to Auckland had an engineering issue.

The 227 passengers were accommodated at hotels for the night.

The aircraft involved was being inspected by engineers, with passengers expected to be given an updated departure time later today.
