Air New Zealand has denied claims it allowed non-compliant passengers to board a plane to Samoa earlier this month, after the issue was raised in an internal Government report on Monday.

The report, obtained by the Samoa Observer, states the 18 September 2020 flight carried several passengers without the valid medical clearances required to enter Samoa, and recommends that Air New Zealand “thoroughly check” documentation.
