Airport Flyer Fares

  • It only costs $9.00 (adult cash fare) from Wellington Airport to Wellington City. You can pay by Snapper and get 20%* off the cash price of a single adult or child fare.

The Airport Flyer buses were purpose built for the route with leather coach-style seats, extra leg room and a wide door and low floor for easy access. Easier access and new luggage racks make travelling to and from the airport with luggage easier.

TV screens display route information, weather and news updates along with flight arrival and departure information from Wellington Airport. Automatic announcements advise passengers of the next stop. CCTV provides increased passenger security. There is also free WiFi on-board.
