About the airport

Wellington International Airport is in the Wellington suburb of Rongotai, and today it’s the third busiest airport in New Zealand (after Auckland Airport and Christchurch Airport). It started life as a humble grass runway in 1928 - the airport as we know it today didn’t open until 1959. A simple tin-shed hanger acted as the only domestic terminal until 1986, when Ansett New Zealand constructed a brand-new terminal.

Wellington International Airport remains a relatively small airport, with a single runway serving both domestic and international flights. You can find the Wellington International Airport branch of Hertz Car Rental on the ground floor of the main terminal building (arrivals). The pick-up and drop-off area is over on the south side of the terminal, and we can direct you there.
