Walk our new ‘Green Line’ between terminals

Stretch your legs and get some fresh air by following our new green line walkway between terminals. We’ve changed the route to keep travellers safe and to make way for construction bringing together domestic jet and international travel.

The 950m walkway is well marked with improved shade and shelter, and, in most places, follows a green line on the footpath. The new route takes about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your walking speed.

Celebrating walks of New Zealand

We have teamed up with the Department of Conservation (DOC) to showcase Aotearoa New Zealand’s beautiful walks along the new green line walkway.
Displaying some of New Zealand’s most stunning scenery, there are 36 different DOC tracks and locations celebrated along the green line with giant panoramic photos, featuring multi-day walks along the golden bays of the Abel Tasman and through the forests of the Paparoa Track on the West Coast. There are also single-day walks including the Rangitoto Summit Track in Auckland and the Kauaeranga Kauri Trail in the Coromandel.
