As New Zealand's largest and busiest airport we have over 20.5 million passengers using our services and facilities each year, which accounts for around 75% of international arrivals into our country.
The airport is owned and operated by Auckland International Airport Limited, which is one of the largest companies listed on the New Zealand stock exchange.

The airport is divided into two areas; the public or 'before security', and ‘after security'.
When requesting 'after security' access, at least 48 hours notice is preferred. Note that due to security requirements, access is usually denied.
