Auckland Airport (IATA: AKL, ICAO: NZAA), is an airport serving the Auckland area in New Zealand. Scroll down or click here to see what Auckland Airport shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, and facilities we have in our Duty Free Information 2022 Database. Currently in our database we have information on 59 shops, 9 cafes, and 19 restaurants at Auckland Airport. If you believe this data is out of date or incorrect in any way, please contact us and we will get our team of researchers to correct our data.

It has one concrete 3,535-meter runway and one in the planning works. There were 21 million passengers and 178,775 aircraft movements in 2018-2019. It has two terminals, one for domestic use and one for international use, and 65 gates with 23 jetbridges. There are remote stands for 42 airplanes.

AKL began as an aero club in 1928 when the group said they found it a perfect place to build an airport. In the 1940s, it was the base for the Royal New Zealand Air Force, and by 1960, it was transformed into a civilian airport. By 1973, the runway had been expanded from 2,590 meters to 3,535 meters long. During the 1990s and 2000s, there were attempts to build another runway, but the plans never went through. There have been several terminal upgrades throughout the years, so not all of the renovation plans have failed.

Parking options include long- and short-term parking, motorcycle and bike parking and meet and greet. Ground transportation includes taxis, shuttles, ride shares and public transportation.

How far away is Auckland Airport from from the centre of Auckland?

It takes approximately 25 mins to drive the 16.4 mi (26.4 kilometres) between the centre of Auckland and Auckland Airport, making it accessible enough to facilitate and accommodate any travel plans.

Frequently Asked Questions

Duty free shopping is when you can purchase goods that have had the duty/tax (usually taxes like import, VAT, and sales tax) waivered by the government, therefore reducing the prices that you would normally expect to pay in a standard shop or website. Duty free shops are usually found at airports or sea terminals, but you can also sometimes purchase duty free goods during international flights or on cruises.

Anyone travelling internationally (between two different countries) is eligible to purchase duty free items.

The term 'duty' refers to the tax that you pay if you bring a product from one country to another. i.e. if you bought some perfume in the United Kingdom, and then flew to Germany you might have to pay tax in both countries. Most governments do not charge the duty on products bought when you are leaving that country, which means that the customer doesn't have to pay the tax twice. This usually only applies when you are leaving the country, i.e. it is for export purposes only.

As the price for items bought in duty free shops often have the duty taken off the RRP, it can make them a lot cheaper than if you bought the goods in a normal shop. However, there are usually limits on how much you can buy on your trip, and these limits will vary from country to country, and also vary from item to item (i.e. there will be different limits on alcohol and cigarettes).

The most popular items in duty free shops are usually the products that are most heavily taxed, i.e. alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco. Duty free inventories will vary from country to country, and also from airport to airport. In larger airports, you may even find different prices in the numerous shops - remember it's always best to shop around! Make sure you check our database to see all the shops at each airport, and then you can invesigate the prices at each one.

Sadly, you can't just turn up at a duty free shop with several empty suitcases and fill them up with goodies! Restrictions will be in place, and these can vary from country to country. You will only be allowed to buy certain amounts of different types of products. Tobacco, alcohol, and perfumes are usually the products that are most likely to be subject to the stricter allowances. Make sure you check whilst purchasing, or else you run the risk of your items being confiscated upon arrival at your destination's customs.

No. Duty free is only available to travellers who are flying from one country to another country.

Yes. Many duty free shops will allow you to pre-order any purchases online before your journey. You will need your boarding pass and passport when you pick the items up from the airport shop.

What is there to do upon arrival at Auckland Airport?

Once you arrive at the airport, you have the option to fuel up for your journey ahead by grabbing a bite to eat at any of the 28 available restaurants and cafes, or why not head straight for the duty-free shopping opportunities at the 59 different shops around Auckland Airport? Get a last-minute gift for a loved one, or spoil yourself with a well-deserved souvenir from your trip.

Way to travel,bucket list.Emirates Limo to airport,early check in,early French bubbles in lounge,a pity our lounge doesn't have the runway views like Brisbane or Heathrow (WOW). Some swine nabbed my 23A so had 23K,probably the two best seats in business. Service great as usual and was able to sleep for the first time on a long haul.Met some great people in the lounge,it was a holiday on it's own .

Declared epilepsy medication. Directed to inspection lanes. 3 separate queues before I was finally waved through without an inspection. I would rather have had my luggage fully inspected than be in 3 queues just to be let out without being checked. Epileptics don't do well when under stress.

Transferred ANZ flight from SYD to ANZ flight to SFO. Airport is just average. Connecting capabilities are good and quick. Terminal is old. ANZ Business Lounge very nice, with excellent food and good wifi. The gates we flew into and out of were very outdated.

Parking was a bit of a hassle as there is no drop-off point for those with mobility issues. It was very difficult getting to the airline due to the long distance.
