Auckland International Airport (AKL)
Wellington Airport (WLG)

Formed by volcanoes and flanked by natural harbors, Auckland is New Zealand’s largest, most multicultural city, and a gateway to the island’s epic landscapes. Significant Polynesian, Asian and Maori cultures create an eclectic feel to everything from Pacific Rum cuisine to hip neighborhoods that are characterized by Edwardian and Victorian architecture.

Located on the southwestern tip of North Island, Wellington is a compact city set along a picturesque harbor with a powerful mix of history and nature. This capital city is an energetic mix of sandy beaches, green hills and a bustling marina.
