The Hubs

AUCKLAND AIRPORT. Auckland Airport is by far the largest airport in New Zealand by numbers of passengers received, number of direct destinations served and by number of airlines flying there. The international terminal is large, modern and well set out, with lots of shops and eateries. The domestic terminal however, is not so flash, although it is under renovation. It's important to note that the international and domestic terminals are not connected, but are linked by a five minute free shuttle ride, or ten minute walk. Be sure to allow for this when connecting.
WELLINGTON AIRPORT. Wellington's airport is small, yet modern and super efficient. There's a great range of shops and plenty of public spaces. An awesome feature of the airport is the huge 15 metre figures from the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit movies in the main lounge.
CHRISTCHURCH AIRPORT. Christchurch has a great new airport constructed for the 2011 Rugby World Cup. There's a small range of shops in the domestic terminal including several eateries. The international terminal is connected and has its own range of shops. The airport has very large and modern public areas also.
