Travel and transportation
Auckland International Airport, the largest and busiest airport in New Zealand, is located 25 kilometres south-west of Auckland in the suburb of Mangere.
The host will assist all representatives on arrival and transport will be provided to their hotels. If representatives are unable to give advance notice to WHO of their expected time of arrival and are therefore not met at the airport, taxis and shuttle buses are available.
The airport-to-city trip costs approximately:
- By taxi: NZ$ 45 (about 30-40 minutes)
- By shuttle: NZ$ 18 (about 40 minutes)
- By bus: NZ$ 15 (about an hour)
Taxis licensed to operate from the airport carry a value and service guarantee. Taxi stands are located on the western side of the International Terminal (turn left as you exit the Customs Hall) and directly outside the Domestic Terminal. Taxi drivers speak English.
For easy identification upon arrival at the airport, representatives are requested to wear the lapel labels which are provided herewith. Luggage tags also are provided.
Transport from the hotel to the airport will be provided for representatives scheduled to depart not later than Sunday, 24 September 2006. Representatives who will be extending their stay should make their own transport arrangements to the airport.
The departure time from the hotels to the airport will be posted at the WHO desk located at the lobby of each hotel.
An international departure fee of NZ$ 25 is levied on passengers upon embarkation at Auckland International Airport.
