Auckland Airport

Auckland Airport is the major connection between the world and New Zealand – "the land of the long white cloud".

It is where New Zealand touches the world – welcoming visitors and farewelling friends.

Auckland International Airport Limited (Auckland Airport) was formed in 1988, when the New Zealand Government corporatised the management of Auckland International Airport. In 1998, the Government sold down its shareholding, and Auckland Airport became the fifth airport company in the world to be publicly listed.

In 2014 Auckland Airport was voted as the best airport in Australia-Pacific for the sixth year in a row. Auckland Airport generates billions of dollars for the New Zealand economy, creating thousands of jobs, and making a vital contribution to New Zealand travel, trade and tourism by strengthening connections with the world.

Seventy-five per cent of New Zealand's international arrivals use Auckland Airport, which handles over 15 million passengers a year. More than 20 international airlines serve Auckland Airport, Australasia's third busiest international airport, after Sydney and Melbourne.

As New Zealand's major transport hub, Auckland Airport is investing in an airport and traveller experience that all New Zealanders can be proud of.

Auckland Airport is continually developing the capacity and services to ensure it will sustainably cope with an anticipated 40 million passengers a year by 2044, reflecting New Zealand's growing popularity as one of the world's leading tourism destinations.
