Making RV Rentals in Wellington Airport simple with Compare & Choose NZ.
The Wellington International Airport or WLG as per its IATA code, is located in the suburb of Rongotai, and is very handy 5.5 kilometres away from the Wellington city Centre. The airport was previously known as Rongotai Airport. The airport is also the primary hub for Air New Zealand's operations.
The airport is responsible for safely transporting nearly 5.5 million passengers every year, which makes it the third busiest airport, and it is the second busiest airport in regards to aircraft movements.
Not only does the airport provide links to many different domestic locations within New Zealand, but it is also the international gateway to the major cities on the Australian eastern coast.
You will find that the airport has a really great range of retail shops, including big brands such as Country Road, Sunglass Hut, Witchery and Vodafone, but also a stack of great places to grab a bit or have a relaxing drink before you set off. Also, just a hop, skip and a jump away at Lyall Bay is the Airport Retail Park, which has 12 big name super stores located in it.
The airport is a meagre 270 acre property, which lays in between the Miramar Peninsula and Wellington. It has a single two kilometre runway, which is capable of accepting aircraft in both directions. The runway can accommodate many of the larger commercial passenger aircraft such as the Boeing 767-300 and the Airbus A330 and A320. You will also be treated to some spectacular view on both take-off and landing of not only Wellington Harbour but Cook Strait.
