Flights to Samoa and Fiji are back on track after Cyclone Evan tore through the pacific.

Air New Zealand flights from Auckland to Nadi, Fiji are as scheduled, with two flights expected to land there late this afternoon. However, today’s flights from Nadi to Auckland on Air Pacific and Qantas have both been cancelled.

In Samoa, flights bound for Apia from Auckland are back on schedule for Air New Zealand, with an extra service operating on Sunday for extra capacity.

Extra flights will fly into Samoa’s capital, and the national carrier also relaxed baggage allowances. The altered rules allow adult and child passengers booked to travel to Apia up to Sunday December 30 to take one extra piece of luggage with them.

Because the flights leaving from Auckland will have cargo space filled with food and welfare items, passengers travelling this week would not be able to fly with their extra baggage – though it could follow on a different flight free of charge.

From Christmas Day to the end of the month, passengers can take their extra luggage to check-in counters where it would be accepted free of charge.
