Auckland Airport will be running a full-scale emergency drill today to test response to a plane crash.
The airport says the exercise will take place on the airfield behind the International Terminal Building starting at 10am.
During the exercise passengers will evacuate and emergency services will arrive on site to help them and where necessary transport them to a hospital on site.
Auckland Airport’s general manager of operations Anna Cassels-Brown said the exercise could be cancelled at any time if a real emergency should occur.
