Wellington Airport information

Wellington Airport is located at Stewart Duff Dr, Wellington, 6022. There is only one way in and out of the airport, with guests arriving by Calabar Road and some of the grounds surrounded by the waters of Lyall Bay. Wellington International Airport is the third-busiest airport in New Zealand after Auckland and Christchurch, and the second-busiest in the country for aircraft movements. While Christchurch sees more passengers as the biggest airport in the South Island, Wellington seems busier due to more planes and a single runway design.

There is a single terminal located at the eastern end of the grounds, including a main building and three piers.
