Event description
Join us for the Repatriation Flights "Thank You" Event.

About this Event

If somebody would have told us, at the start of 2020, that there would be close to 12,000 stranded Germans in New Zealand, we would have laughed and declared this a situation that would never occur. Three months later exactly that situation happened and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany was facing an entirely unexpected crisis. With the help of the German-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce, Lufthansa, Air New Zealand, Airport ground staff in Auckland and Christchurch, as well as the NZ police, the mammoth task was completed.

A very grateful father, whose daughter was able to return to Germany during the COVID-19 outbreak, started a funding campaign to thank everyone involved in the repatriation program for their efforts. With donations coming from grateful Germans, who made it home, they raised about $2000 so that the “Repatriation Teams” in Auckland and Christchurch can now reflect on and celebrate with a joint toast to what was accomplished.

So, join us in celebrating the mammoth task we completed, sending 26 planes with 10,000 passengers from 23 European countries, back to Germany within a 2 week time frame.
