Air New Zealand says around 2000 passengers a day will be hit by flight cancellations after someone digging up a kauri log damaged the only jet fuel pipeline between Northland's Marsden Point refinery and Auckland Airport.

Air travel   All airlines using Auckland Airport are now restricted
The damage, discovered on Thursday but revealed on Sunday, happened about eight kilometres south of the refinery and will take up to two weeks to fix.

All airlines using Auckland Airport are now restricted on how much they can refuel.

Energy and Resources Minister Judith Collins says top officials from government agencies have held further discussions with Refining NZ, which owns the pipeline, the Supply Group, representing fuel companies, airlines and others.
