Easter Bunny named Jacinda flies as sole passenger on flight to collect stranded Germans in New Zealand

(CNN) — Despite the rest of us being stuck at home Sunday, the Easter Bunny is still working hard to bring joy to people around the world. And for one Easter Bunny named Jacinda, that means flying across the world to bring stranded travelers back home.

“The bunny has been named Jacinda and is working to take travellers safely back home from the other side of the world,” the post reads.

So with the important title of “essential worker” weighing on her furry shoulders, Jacinda was sure to perform her “essential” duties.

In one picture, Jacinda is seen wearing a pilot’s hat and Lufthansa scarf, claiming her spot in the cockpit to help the pilots stay on top of their game.

In another picture, Jacinda is seen relaxing in the cabin next to a basket of food.

Last month, the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs extended a temporary ban on return flights beyond March 31. “For how long was not said,” according to the German Embassy in Wellington.

But the German Embassy has since worked up a contract with Air New Zealand and German Lufthansa to bring back the estimated 12,000-15,000 German and European nationals stuck in New Zealand, according to a news release by the embassy.
Last Monday, Lufthansa tweeted that 130 rescue flights have already brought nearly 30,000 people back to Germany from all over the world.
“For the many Lufthansa helpers who volunteered for the long and arduous flights with stopovers in Bangkok, it is a matter of honor. And now, it is our aspiration to bring you back home safely,” the airline said in a Facebook post.
