The flight was diverted to Auckland Airport due to a badly behaved passenger, a police spokeswoman says.

A 42-year-old foreign national was arrested on arrival at Auckland on Sunday evening and was referred to immigration officials.

Passengers on the flight were put up hotels in Auckland.

The flight is due to leave Auckland on Monday afternoon.
