Right now, we have some big changes going on at the airport. We're creating new roads, upgrading our terminals and expanding the airfield as we create your airport of the future.
It may be noisier than usual and you will see hoardings and construction as we move things around. While the works are underway it can be a nuisance and it may take a bit longer than usual to get to the airport.
So if you’re flying soon, here’s the latest information on the development programme, along with a few tips to get your trip off to a smoother start.
The latest information and tips for 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.
Take control of your trip

6 ways to get to and from the airport
How are you getting to the airport? There are many ways for you to begin your journey. Whether it is by friends and family dropping you off, parking, ride share, shuttle, SkyBus, or taxi to the airport there are many options.
Cruise through drop-off
Meet and farewell your friends and family in comfort while avoiding the busy roads. Drop & Ride is a quick and easy way to drop-off family or friends saving you time and avoiding the traffic.
Upgrading our hardest working road system
George Bolt Memorial Drive at the airport is undergoing a transformation. We are widening the road to create high occupancy vehicle lanes. To keep our site workers safe please take care when driving through the construction site.
