Surge in flight bookings to Rarotonga as hope grows for May travel bubble

Kiwis appear eager to begin travelling again, with a significant uptick in flight bookings to Rarotonga in the winter months following the announcement of a quarantine-free travel bubble.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, after her Friday meeting with Cook Islands counterpart Mark Brown, said there was as yet no set date for the two-way bubble, but it was hoped to openby May.

One-way travel began in January, allowing Cook Islands visitors to enter New Zealand without mandatory 14-day quarantine.

Following the news on Friday, an Air New Zealand spokesperson said the airline had experienced a significant uptick in bookings, compared to the same period the previous week.
