Directions for your Wellington Airport Shuttle to Downtown

Wellington airport is located 9 km southeast of the central business district and city centre. A Wellington airport shuttle transfer into the city will therefore take about 20-25 mins, depending on the traffic and time of day. As your transfer begins, you will take Stewart Duff Drive out of the airport and turn right onto Great Harbour Way for 1.5 km. At the roundabout, you will then take the second exit onto Tirangi Road and at the next roundabout, the first exit to Coutts Street and then right onto Te Whiti Street. You will then take a left when you meet Rongotai Road, which you will follow onto Kilbirnie Crescent until you get to SH1, which you will then follow for the next 3.4 km to Willis Street. Your driver will, lastly, follow Willis Street for another 1.3 km and then take a left onto Lambton Quay, which will lead you to the city centre.

Frequently asked questions

Do Wellington airport taxis offer fixed-rate fares?

Wellington airport taxis do offer fixed-rate fares but these need to be requested and agreed upon with the driver at the start of the journey. You are not obliged to take the first taxi in the taxi rank and may choose any cab waiting in line. For a guaranteed fixed rate fare and no hidden costs, you can book your private Wellington airport shuttle service with Welcome Pickups.

Where will I meet my Welcome driver?

Your Welcome driver will be waiting for you in the arrivals hall once you have picked up your luggage. Your driver will be holding a sign with your name and will help you with your items. If the airport is very busy and you can’t find your driver, don’t forget that you will be provided with your driver’s contact details ahead of time and can always contact them directly, if needed.

What happens if my flight is delayed?

Flight delays are a common occurrence, therefore at Welcome Pickups, we provide all our drivers with continuously updated flight details. If your flight is delayed you don’t have to contact us, your driver will be made aware and will be waiting for you at the correct time for a stress-free experience.
