Auckland Airport is the third busiest international airport in Australasia. More than three-quarters of all international visitors to New Zealand arrive here, with 20.5 million passengers having travelled through our terminals in the past 12 months. We play a significant role in supporting New Zealand businesses, with around $15 billion worth of freight passing through the airport every year. Around 15,000 people, across more than 100 businesses, work in and around us. The wider airport precinct features a world-class business park, commercial office buildings, transport and logistics warehouses, hotels and leisure and recreation facilities.
We are proud of what has been achieved at Auckland Airport since it opened in 1966. Today, we are focused on making Auckland an aviation hub for New Zealand and the Pacific Rim, and on being able to accommodate the increasing number of passengers and aircraft wanting to use Auckland Airport. Implementation of our 30-year vision to build the “airport of the future” is well underway. It’s creating jobs, boosting tourism and household incomes and lifting our regional economy and we are playing our part in maintaining New Zealand’s reputation as one of the world’s great travel destinations.
