Auckland Airport Reviews

Auckland Airport (formerly Auckland International Airport) (IATA: AKL, ICAO: NZAA) is the largest and busiest airport in New Zealand with 14,006,122 (7,769,207 international and 6,236,915 domestic) passengers in 2011. The airport is located near Mangere, a residential suburb and Airport Oaks, a service hub suburb 21 kilometers (13 mi) south of the downtown Auckland city center. It is the central hub for Air New Zealand, a New Zealand hub of Virgin Australia, and a focus city for Jetstar Airways.

Auckland Airport is one of New Zealand’s most important infrastructure assets, providing thousands of jobs for the region, and is the country’s second largest cargo port by value, contributing around $14 billion to the economy, and catering for over four million visitors each year, resulting in a 70% share of New Zealand’s international travelers.

The Auckland Airport is the fourth busiest in Australasia after Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane airports. However, internationally, the airport is the second busiest in Australasia as Melbourne had just 6,213,479 international passengers in 2011.

Auckland Airport has been rated in the top 3 worldwide for airports handling 5–15 million passengers annually. It was also voted the 8th best airport in the world in 2011 at the World Airport Awards.
