Airbus Express buses have two different routes: one via Mt. Eden Road and the other via Dominion Road. The first and last stops of both routes are the airport and the city center. It takes about 40-45 minutes by express bus from city center to airport. Considering the fact that the trip would last a bit longer in busy hours, it might be beneficial for you to leave early. You can call +64 9 366 6400 for further information on the Airbus Express buses. Express bus tickets can be purchased online or by cash from the bus driver.

If you are traveling with two or more passengers, you can use the shuttle bus, which is a cheaper option than the Airbus buses.
