An Air New Zealand flight from Dunedin to Wellington has been diverted to Christchurch.

An airline spokesperson said it was due to a technical issue.

The plane left Dunedin at 11.06am on Monday and touched down safely in Christchurch about 11.50am.

It follows the opening of the quarantine-free transtasman bubble this morning.

Six return flights to Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney from Christchurch are expected to take place today.
