From the arrival of the Tainui Waka into the Manukau Harbour, Auckland Airport has always been a place of journeys.
We stand proudly as the gateway to Aotearoa, welcoming travellers beginning their journeys, farewelling Kiwis to new destinations, connecting businesses and workers to new opportunities, and celebrating partners and investors who back us along the way.
From our humble beginnings in 1966, Auckland Airport has grown into one of the largest international airports in Australasia. More than three-quarters of all international visitors to New Zealand arrived here before the outbreak of Covid-19, with 21 million passengers travelling through our terminals in the 2021 financial year.
We play a significant role in supporting New Zealand businesses, with around $15 billion worth of freight passing through the airport each year prior to the pandemic. More than 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.
Today we are focused on transforming Auckland Airport into a world-class travel experience. Not just a place where people go from A to B, but a place where the journey brings as much enjoyment as the destination.
E mahi ana mātou mō Aotearoa. We are working for New Zealand.
