Air New Zealand domestic flights in and out of Auckland were disrupted this afternoon due to unsuitable conditions.

Gusty crosswinds for a couple of hours, coupled with a wet runway, meant dozens of flights were either delayed or cancelled.

A spokeswoman for Air New Zealand said by late afternoon the conditions had eased.

Online information from the airline showed 27 arrivals were affected between 3.30pm and 9.30pm, and 14 departures were delayed or cancelled between 5pm and 7.40pm.
