Flights into Vanuatu delayed

Two repatriation flights scheduled to arrive in Vanuatu from Auckland and Noumea this past weekend were postponed because of high levels of omicron in the two cities.

The postponed repatriation flights happened just as Vanuatu has stepped up its measures to improve the safety of frontline workers with renovations for arrivals at Port Vila International Airport.

The improvements aim to prevent frontline staff contracting the virus from passengers and include 10 protected booths for immigration, customs, and biosecurity staff as well as improved ventilation.
