Cheap Flights to Wellington

Wellington overview

Wellington International Airport was upgraded in recent years, just in time for the New Zealand Rugby World Cup (2011). The airport is situated in the Rongotai suburb of Wellington, just 8km (5 miles) from central Wellington, and commands spectacular views of the surrounding hills as well as the Cook Strait, which separates the North and South Islands of New Zealand.

There are only three international carriers offering flights to Wellington International; however the airport is well-serviced by domestic carriers with many flights connecting the airport to both Christchurch and Auckland. Wellington International is well-connected to the rest of New Zealand and is well-serviced by a public bus connecting it to various parts of the city.

As the third-busiest airport in New Zealand, Wellington is a great airport to use when arriving in New Zealand, particularly for passengers wishing to avoid the rush and bother of Auckland after a long flight.
