Posted April 02, 2019 07:12:03Flight NZA, operated by Air New Zealand, is due to take off from Melbourne Airport at 8:20am and will land at Tokyo airport at 9:35am.
The flight will be the first since an Australian Airlines flight from Sydney to Sydney, which departed at 9.20am, was delayed due to bad visibility.
The flight is part of an international flight between Australia and Japan, which has been delayed twice this year due to weather conditions.
The ANA flight was due to depart Melbourne at 9am on Thursday.
The company said it would have to turn back to Tokyo, and then fly to Perth for the flight to Auckland.
Airlines said it was considering the possibility of cancelling the flight, but said it had no immediate plans to do so.
Air New Zealand spokesman Ben Dyson said: “We are looking into the situation and are trying to work with the airline and its operator to find a way forward.”
Mr Dyson did not give details on the conditions of the aircraft, including if the weather conditions were bad.
“We are still assessing what the visibility is, and the aircraft may be delayed,” he said.
The aircraft had a flight rating of 1,500kg.
