The summer is traditionally the busiest time of the year for Auckland Airport but this year a raft of upgrades to both the departures terminal and the roading system should make life easier for travellers.
Indications are that this year will be our busiest summer yet, with international travellers coming to New Zealand merging with local travellers heading away to see family and friends for the holidays, and already visitor numbers are growing says Auckland Airport’s general manager of operations, Anna Cassels-Brown.
“This year will be at least 10% busier than last summer, so it’s important to be prepared for that,” she says.
“Even with the changes we’ve made there’s still a need for travellers to be prepared if they’re coming to the airport on these key dates.”
To make the journey as smooth as we can, the airport has introduced a number of initiatives to help travellers this summer season.
The airport has more than 80 Customer Service Hosts, to help our travelling guests in the terminals.
“If you are feeling under pressure, or are unsure where to go or what to do if you’re running late, just ask. We are here to help,” says Anna.
Finally, the key is to get through the processing formalities early so you can relax before you fly.
“We have a brand new departures area that has added shops, new restaurants and bars, and new seating areas which have lots of phone charging points and art works to enjoy,” says Anna.
Auckland Airport would like to thank travellers for their patience and good humour during this time.
“We know it is going to be especially busy at this time of year and we want to thank everyone in advance. If we all allow a bit more time and plan our travel, from home to airplane, things will run smoothly for everyone.”
