People gravitate towards New Zealand for the incomparable mix of adventure and refined culture that this country offers. As edgy as it is laid back, New Zealand has something to offer everyone.

Flights to New Zealand

There are several airports that service both international and domestic flights to New Zealand. International flights to New Zealand are either direct or connected through Australia. Hamilton Airport, located in Hamilton on the North Island, is more commonly used for domestic flights to New Zealand. Wellington International Airport connects New Zealand’s capital, Wellington, with Australia and Fiji. Rural Queenstown Airport takes domestic flights and connects to Australia. Aukland Airport is New Zealand’s largest and busiest airport, servicing a large amount of international flights, not restricted to Australia as with many other New Zealand airports. International and domestic terminals are usually constructed separately, and are connected via free shuttle service, making it easier for travelers to make their transfers. Taxis, shuttles, and cars for hire are available at all of the airports, taking visitors into the city or town center.

New Zealand Weather

New Zealand’s two islands are surrounded by the South Pacific Ocean. Both the ocean and New Zealand’s world-famous mountains act as regulators for the country’s climate. The temperate climate means a lack of extreme temperatures, but the weather can change very swiftly. The seasons are reversed from what the North Hemisphere experiences, with summer in December, January, and February, and winter in June, July and August. Temperatures are usually between in the 70s-80s in the summer and 30s-40s in the winter. It is important to pack plenty of sun protection, including hats, sunglasses, and lotion on flights to New Zealand. Light sweaters and rain jackets are essentials for the summer. If you’re visiting New Zealand’s mountains or travelling in the winter, pack heavier sweaters and some winter clothes.

Getting Around New Zealand

Flights to New Zealand offer travelers many great opportunities to get around the country. Public transportation is well established. Buses and taxis are available in all of the larger cities. Many visitors enjoy hiring a car for the duration of their stay. You will need your driver’s permit, and usually must be 21 to hire a car. For a truly unique and scenic experience, consider hiring a camper or motor-home to make your vacation in New Zealand all the more unforgettable. Motor-homes can give you the freedom to experience parts of New Zealand you might not otherwise find accessible, and you will save a fortune on hotels and meals. Ferries can transport you and your vehicle between New Zealand’s islands.
