Plan your journey to the airport

From November 2017 we are planning to make changes to traffic flows and parking at the domestic terminal.

These changes will improve access to the terminal forecourt for passengers, commercial transport operators and buses while we design a new domestic jet terminal that will be joined onto the existing international terminal.

The improvements include more space on the terminal forecourt for public transport and Auckland Transport’s 380 Airporter service which will increase frequency on 10 December from every 30 minutes to every 15 minutes.

To reduce the volume of traffic that goes into the drop off and pick up zone, a new access route to the terminal forecourt will be built for commercial transport operators only.
