The only direct bus connection to and from the airport is the Airport Flyer. You recognise it easily by its striking orange colour. (The Valley Flyer is purple, the GoWellington buses yellow, and Newsmans buses green.)

Fares depend on where you want to go, and are from NZ$ 3.50 to 10.00. Our trip from the airport to the Railway Station, for example, cost NZ$ 6.50 per person. To Courtenay Place it costs 5.50.

The Flyer runs at 30 minute intervals, starting from the airport at 6.20am until 8.20pm (Mon ? Fri), on weekends and public holidays from 6.50am to 8.50pm.

If you plan to travel back to the airport on the same day or make more bus trips buy a day pass for $ 12 (= Star Pass). It allows you to travel on all Wellington buses except Newmans, and as far as Eastbourne on the other side of the harbour.

Update 23 August 2008
New fares from 1 September 2008. They write: "The fares remain either unchanged, go up 50 cents or one dollar." Now you know everything ;-)

Update November 2009
The Airport Flyer has been updated dramatically, travelling now is fantastic for someone who does not know the city at all. Not only do the new buses have nice leather seats and free WiFi, also all stops are announced and indicated on a digital display and a screen with a map. Tell the driver where you want to go to and he will tell you at which stop you have to get off.
