Of New Zealand's three major airports, Wellington Airport is located closest to the centre of the city it serves.

It is 6 km southeast of the city. In normal circumstances, there are shuttles, Airport Flyer buses and taxis to the centre. Alternatively, the Metlink Route 2 public bus departs from the Hobart Street bus stop. Exit from Door E and follow the signs (a 700 metre or 7-minute walk).

Car hire is available at the airport.

Wellington is nicknamed the "Windy City," for good reason, so aeroplane landings at Wellington Airport can be somewhat bumpy.
