The airport is never still, things are changing here as we're upgrading our roads, expanding the airfield, changing our car parks and our retailers are re-opening as more of us are travelling.
While the works are underway it can be a nuisance please do take extra care as you drive through the roadworks.
So if you’re flying soon, here’s a few tips to help you breeze through the airport and get your trip off to a smoother start.
Stay informed as we widen roads, create new access roads and intersections. Please take extra care as you drive through the roadworks.
Track your journey
Across the Domestic and International terminals you’ll find QR codes for the Ministry of Health’s NZ Covid Tracer app that you can scan. The app will help you keep track of where you have been.
