Interesting use of the return leg of the repat flight

Apart from being a typical Jafa and not knowing there was a Mt Albert in Wellington, I would have to assume these engineers are being paid a pretty penny, uh, Euro - they will come here and go straight into two weeks quarantine in AKL, then travel down to Welly to do their job, then when they finish, they can't have any real idea of how/when they will get back home
Is they are considered essential service would they not be exempt from the quarantine like air crew have been?
