About “Auckland Airport”
Auckland Airport is one of New Zealand’s largest and best performing companies. We connect Auckland to New Zealand and New Zealand to the world.
We were formed in 1988 when the New Zealand Government corporatised Auckland International Airport and sold down its shareholding, making us only the fifth airport company in the world to be publicly listed.
We’re the third-largest international airport in Australasia by passenger numbers. Before COVID-19, more than 18 million passengers would pass through our airport each year, including over 74% of international visitors to New Zealand.
We’re New Zealand’s third largest cargo port by value, handling 20 per cent and 12 per cent of New Zealand’s exports and imports respectively.
We’re also a significant business district, with thousands of people working in and around the airport. The area is home to more than 800 businesses including two hotels and more than 100 retail shops, cafes, restaurants and global retailers.
