Thousands of airline passengers were stranded in Auckland on Monday(18) after a burst pipeline cut jet fuel supplies to New Zealand's largest airport.

The damaged pipeline is Auckland Airport's only source of jet fuel.

The disruption is expected to last at least a week as work continues to repair the pipe, the operator said.

Fuel supplies have been rationed and airlines are looking to refuel in Australia and elsewhere to keep long-haul services running.
