Napier Airport Mini Guide

What's to Know About Napier and the Airport?
Napier is on the East side of North Island, located at Hawke’s Bay.  The city has a colourful history dating back into Maori records and is famous for several things, including its extensive Art Deco architecture and the production and export of wool and wine, predominantly via its seaport.  The airport, formally named Hawke’s Bay Airport and sometimes called Napier Airport - is just outside the city. Hawke's Bay is one of New Zealand's premier wine producing regions and the airport stocks plenty of it for you to buy as gifts.

Tell me More About the Airport
Hawke’s Bay Airport is 10 minutes from Napier city centre and 20 minutes from neighbouring Hastings.  It receives only domestic flights and is modern and well-equipped to serve its visitors.  Beside the typical passenger facilities on offer, there is a café, a lounge and an open-air viewing deck.  Having a small footprint brings efficiency and there are refreshingly short walking distances.  Onward transfers are available via taxi or shuttle, making car hire a good option to travel freely and make the most of your visit.  If you have hired with Rhino, collect your vehicle from the car hire counters within the terminal building.

How Can I Make the Best of my Visit?
Touring within the city offers some of the world’s most beautiful and established Art Deco architecture.  There is a full calendar of events and festivals to look out for.  You might want to visit the popular statue "Pania of the Reef" or take a drive or stroll down Marine Parade - a tree-lined boulevard boasting fountains, gardens, statues and more.  Historians can trawl back into old Maori records or explore the story of the 1930's earthquake.

To find the night life, head into the Ahuriri entertainment district where you can enjoy lively cafes and tasty cuisine, accompanied by some exceptional local wines to really bring your taste buds alive.  It’s a uniquely beautiful place which has something to keep everyone entertained within the city limits.  If you are tempted to explore, a good road network will of course take you off on some exciting adventures further afield.

Latest Update from Napier Airport:

29/04/12 - Having just completed a multi-million dollar extension of the runway so it can accept international flights, the airport's owners are now mulling over plans to reconfigure the terminal so that it can process international passengers. A decision isn't expected for another year.

After an earthquake destroyed much of the city in 1931, it was rebuilt in art deco style, a feature of the city which remains its key attraction today. Other attractions of interest are the National Aquarium with its underwater travelator or a visit to one of the country’s most acclaimed wineries, Hawke’s Bay.

If planning a day at the beach using your hire car, the best are Waimarana and Ocean Beach, which have miles of golden sand and plenty of things to do for young families and the water sports fanatic.
