Hawke’s Bay Airport is only allowing those travelling on flights to enter its terminal building.
The new measure is to assist with social distancing requirements.
The airport says exceptions will be made in situations where the travelling person requires a support person to assist them ahead of boarding or through the arrivals terminal.
It says the safety and security of the passengers and customers who pass through the airport, or individuals who work there, is always its top priority.
The airport is defined as an essential service and will remain open after the Government’s COVID-19 alert status shifts to Level 4, at 11.59pm tomorrow.
Passengers can still fly domestically until tomorrow night. Once the Level 4 alert comes into force, only travel undertaken for essential services will be permitted for domestic flights.
Once Level 4 takes effect, people must stay at home, schools and non-essential businesses will be closed and travel will be severely limited. It will stay this way for at least four weeks.
