Auckland International Airport is located about 20 kilometres south of the city centre in the suburb of Mangere.
New Zealand’s largest and busiest airport has one terminal building for international flights and another for domestic flights.
Inter-terminal bus service
A free bus runs between the international and domestic terminals from 6am to 10.30pm daily. The bus departs from directly in front of the terminals and stops at both the Air New Zealand and Qantas domestic terminals. There is also a walkway between the international and domestic terminals. The walk takes approximately 10 minutes.

A shuttle is a cost effective way to travel into the city. Discounts apply if two or more people are travelling together - approximately $6 per additional person. Shuttles are normally shared with other passenger groups. The shuttle’s travelling time depends on traffic conditions and the number of drop-offs or pick-ups along the way. Allow plenty of time to reach the airport for departing flights.
Approximately $70 to $90 - about 30 minutes
The journey between the airport and the central city can take considerably longer during peak traffic periods. If you’re travelling to the airport by taxi, make sure you allow plenty of time. Taxis licensed to operate from the airport carry a value and service guarantee.
Major rental car companies operate from both terminal buildings. Bookings are strongly recommended.
