Wellington Airport Mini Guide

About the Airport
Wellington International Airport is in Rongotai, close to Wellington on North Island. It is the third busiest airport in New Zealand. The terminal has been nicknamed ‘The Rock’ due to its controversial and unconventional design. Prepare yourself for rough landings at the airport as there are often strong cross winds through the Cook Strait meaning wobbles as you  are about to touch down.

Wellington Airport

Where can I Fly From?
You can fly from many airports in New Zealand and major cities in Australia, such as Melbourne and Sydney.

Is it Easy to get to the City?
By car it is an easy drive using state highway 1 (via Mount Victoria Tunnel) and only 8 km to the city. You can meet your car hire representative at level 0 in the terminal. Taxis and shuttle buses are available to take you into the city or you can take the Metlink 91 Airport Flyer, it runs every 15 minutes.

What’s at the Airport for me?
Firstly, when you arrive at the airport you will see the Information Station, where you can pick up maps and find out more about local attractions. Here you can also book a hotel or ask about transport in the area. There are four ATMs conveniently located around the terminal and Travelex can change your currency or help with banking or postal services. Free Wi-Fi is available all around the airport if you need to check up on emails. Ambassadors are volunteers at the airport who can offer you information about the airport or the local area.

What if I get Hungry?
Try the South East Asian hawker style dishes at Billie Chu or if you enjoy a good curry head for Curry Capital where they serve multi-ethnic food.

Latest Update from Wellington Airport:

29/04/12 - Squabbles continue over the expansion of the airport. An expensive construction out into the sea would be required to accept more international flights and so the airlines serving it have been encouraged to use special aircraft that require shorter runways. The airport is currently in the middle of a project to expand the terminal, making things less crowded for passengers and adding better facilities.
