Auckland Airport is located 13 miles south of Auckland. Auckland is located in the north of the North Island of New Zealand. To the airport from the center you can take the bus or taxi or what many tourists do is rent a rental car from Hertz, Avis, Europcar or Thrifty. The airport has two terminals located close to each other. One is for all domestic Auckland departures and the other for international Auckland airport departures. Both have an arrivals lobby on the ground floor with baggage reclaim. The check-in desks are also on the ground floor. You will have to go to the first floor through security to get to the gates. Upon arrival you will walk the other way around.
All AKL departures go from the same runway. Sometimes with great crowds, but that is temporarily a thing of the past due to corona. After years of growth, a decrease of at least 50 percent is expected. There are still relatively many domestic Auckland Airport departures, but the international flights are nil. The decline is particularly great for the routes to Australia. With normally 4 million passengers per year, the difference with this year is big. The main airports are Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. But the other regions also have fewer flights. There are also many flights to Singapore and Hong Kong and Nadi, located in Fiji. Auckland is also popular with American travelers. In the top international destinations are San Francisco, Houston and Los Angeles. The airport is based on Air New Zealand. It is therefore not illogical that most Auckland departures AKL are from this airline with many destinations to the US, Australia and Asia. Other popular airlines are Cathay Pacific, China Airlines, Emirates, Jetstar, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, United Airlines, Virgin Australia, Singapore Airlines, Fiji Airways.
