All commercial flights have been grounded across the country due to a radar fault.

Radio New Zealand have reported that the nationwide fault means flights currently up in the air can land but no planes are allowed to take off.


Airways New Zealand has identified the fault which has caused a nationwide radar outage this afternoon.

The fault discovered shortly before 3pm meant no planes could take off.

Auckland Airport says they are now boarding planes again - starting with international flights.

That will be followed by domestic and then regional.
