Repatriati­ons delayed


Nuku’alofa: Flights from Fiji, New Zealand and Australia to Tonga have been postponed to next month due to managed quarantine period changes.

The flights were scheduled for February 25, but have now been moved to March 3.

The new rule requires repatriate­d passengers to be in managed quarantine for 21 days, with no home isolation.

Tongan head of government communicat­ion Paula Ma’u said postponing the flights allowed for one week for workers to rest and for the facilities to be cleaned before the next arrivals. — RNZ
