Air New Zealand has boosted the number of seats available to get people out of Fiji.

The airline has cancelled tomorrow morning's scheduled A320 service from Auckland to Nadi, flight NZ752, and the return flight, NZ753.

NZ752 was due to leave Auckland at 7:45am. It will be replaced with a larger Boeing 777-300, more than doubling the number of seats available in both directions.

The larger aircraft will now operate as NZ6802 and will depart Auckland at 1:00pm.
The return leg will leave Nadi tomorrow at 5:30pm.

Air New Zealand says all passengers who were booked on the cancelled NZ752 and NZ753 services have been rebooked on the later service.

Meanwhile the Air New Zealand 747-400 aircraft which operated to Nadi this afternoon with no passengers, at the request of the Fiji government, is returning to Auckland this evening with 260 passengers on board.
