  1. Wow good news and I also share a news related to airport, Auckland Airport can also give you the friendly services of the transit facilities. You can have the same by availing the airport taxi Auckland is offering, where its fixed economical rates are lower than the conventional taxi services. To enjoy the in-time, comfortable services seamlessly, you may have your trip booked in advance, by using the online booking facilities in their website. To have your transactions done, you may use your credit card, as well.

  2. Hi, I would like to enquire about the Airporter 380 bus. The bus timetable link provided in the website is not working.

    I would be arriving at the Auckland International Airport on 2nd May, 1325hr. I am planning my trip from the airport to Hamilton. I am quite confused with the transport available and I am not sure if you could help me with it.

    Is it feasible for me to take the airport 380 bus to Manukau and from there, change to the intercity bus? From the intercity website, they offer a service from the airport to Hamilton with a transfer at Manukau too. May i know what is the difference then? The service offered by intercity has very few buses operating in the afternoon from the airport to hamilton hence I am thinking of taking the Airporter 380 to Manukau instead and then buy a ticket from intercity to travel from Manukau to hamilton.

    Thank you in advance for your help. I await your early reply.
