The pause on quarantine-free travel between New South Wales and New Zealand will be lifted on Sunday night.
But New Zealand’s COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins said the end of the pause of the trans-Tasman bubble with Sydney will always depend on the development of more cases.
This comes after NSW detected no new local cases of COVID-19 for the second consecutive day, despite more than 22,000 tests being conducted.
Flights can resume from 11.59pm Sunday, Mr Hipkins said.
The end of the pause aligns with the lifting of restrictions in New South Wales at 12.01am on Monday.
