NZB Airfreight Equine Flight Update

Monday, March 23, 2020

The government’s recent announcements regarding further travel restrictions and New Zealand border closures due to COVID-19 has resulted in the suspension of all international equine flights effective immediately until further notice. 


The decision made by airlines to cease the uplift of cabin occupants means that NZB Airfreight’s professional grooms are no longer able to safely accompany the shipment of horses travelling overseas.  


NZB Airfreight will provide any further updates on imminent flight resumption when possible.


In the interim, we will continue to look for alternative services to transport your horses.
