Warbirds Health & Safety

At Warbirds Over Wanaka we are committed to the health and safety of all our patrons and event team. 

As a consequence of the NZ Government's requirements we are doing everything we can to be prepared for any restrictions that might be in place nearer the event.  Currently the mandate is that only vaccinated people will be able to attend big events like Warbirds Over Wanaka.

We want as many of our ‘Warbirds’ family to be able to join us next Easter. To this end we are urging all our Team and those buying tickets to our event, to be vaccinated. 

We believe that getting as many New Zealanders as possible double vaccinated is the single best thing that people can do to help us ALL get back to some normality and enable us to hold our Airshow.

Warbirds Over Wanaka will be responsive to NZ Government mandates.  We will communicate our full policy to you all as soon as we are able.



Warbirds Over Wanaka will only proceed if we are at Green or Orange traffic lights.  

Our systems allow us to be very responsive to requirements that might be in place nearer the event.  Our Trustees and Management have completed six different scenarios to mitigate risk at the Airshow and our Trustees have signed off on our current Health & Safety plans.



  • If you feel unwell, please do NOT come to the Airshow.

  • Please note we have your details on file if you have already purchased tickets from Ticketek, these details will be used for contact tracing if necessary.

  • It will be faster to purchase your tickets online. If you purchase tickets at the gate, please ensure you give your address and all contact details for contact tracing purposes.


  • Follow all notified protocols.

  • If applicable please ensure you have signed into our QR Code and wear your mask.

  • Free Hand sanitiser will be available in multiple locations, please use it.


Further details will be added here as they come to hand.
