The Air New Zealand flight which was diverted back to Auckland last week was due to a technical fault.
Airports Fiji Limited says the flight was diverted last Thursday and the rescheduled flight from Auckland arrived in Nadi on Friday.
The clarification comes following reports that flight NZ952 was returned yesterday morning as two border quarantine cases of COVID-19 announced last week had travelled on the flight.
A 38-year-old female and a 15-year-old male who over the weekend were announced as the latest border quarantine case traveled to Fiji from Manila, Philippines, arriving in Nadi on flight NZ952 from Auckland on the 8th of April.
According to the post which is displaying an image of FlightRadar24, Air New Zealand was an hour out of Nadi when it turned back.
