An ANZ Air New Zealand Airbus A320-200, registration ZK-OXC performing flight NZ-402 from Wellington to Auckland (New Zealand) with 148 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Wellington's runway 34 when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed (about 100 knots over ground) due a bird strike affecting an engine. The aircraft slowed safely and returned to the apron.

Maintenance checked the engine and returned the aircraft to service. The aircraft was able to depart about one hour after the rejected takeoff.

The aircraft reached Auckland with a delay of 50 minutes.
