We are doing our best to work through the allocation of all passengers onto future flights subject to availability of MIQ accommodation .”
The Office of the Secretary of Government will contact only those people who have been approved to travel on the first flight that re-commences on the Tuesday 19 October 2021.
Those passengers who were originally booked for the 19 October 2021 will not be able to travel to Niue on this date due to limited availability of MIQ space.
