All domestic flights in and out of Auckland Airport have been cancelled from tomorrow.

Weather reports show cyclone Gabrielle will bring very strong winds and heavy rainfall to Auckland tomorrow and Tuesday.

All flights to, from or through Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga and Taupo are cancelled until midday Tuesday.

The disruption extends to international flights, including Trans-Tasman and Pacific flights.

Some long haul flights to North America have also been affected.

Air New Zealand warned customers should be prepared for further flight cancellations as the strength and path of the cyclone remained fluid.

Auckland and Coromandel are under MetService’s highest severe weather warnings possible as Cyclone Gabrielle tracks closer to New Zealand bringing strong winds and heavy rain.

MetService has issued red warnings for both heavy rain and strong winds for these regions.
