Auckland Airport Guide to Auckland Airport - AKL

Auckland Airport International Terminal

Auckland Airport International Terminal is just for international flights. Each terminal is separated by 500m distance of each other. 

Considering the amount of Asian passengers, multi-language flight information boards and directional signs (including Chinese text) have been installed throughout the airport. 

On 2006, due to the 11S attacks and regulations by the ICAO, arriving and departing passengers were physically separated and there was built a new departure level on an above floor than the existing one. By this way, the arrivals lounge was moved to the existing level. Also, there was an expansion made on the retail space by 600 sqm. 

Transport between terminals

International Terminal is connected to Domestic Terminal by an open-air signposted walkaway. You can get to the Domestic Terminal in about 10 minutes by foot. If you prefer, you can also take the free inter-terminal bus. Opening hours: 5 am – 10.30 pm every 15 minutes.
