Located on the North Island Auckland Internatinal is the biggest and busiest Airport in New Zealand carrying over 20 million passengers in 2019. With over 30+ Domestic, Internatinal and Cargo destinations it opens up New Zealand with Asia, Oceania and North America. This tutorial will teach you the do’s and dont’s of Auckland Internatinal.
Auckland Airport is really east to get around as all aircraft tend to use the same route depeding on the size, I have included a chart that can give the most realistic taxi procedues from Antonov to an SR22.
- Red - Heavy aircraft (A380,777)
- Blue - Shot Haul (A320, 737)
- Yellow - Turpoprop (Q400 - ATR72)
- Smaller internatinal aircraft eg: A320, 737 are to follow Heavies along the Red line.
- When Landing 05R, Shorthaul/Turboprop aircraft are to exit the runway via A5 while Heavies are to exit either via A3, A2, A1, A1A
- When Landing 23L, Shorthaul/Turboprop aircraft are to exit the runway via A6 while Heavies are to exit either via A8, A9, A10.
Auckland currently has one runway wich is 05R/23L and is 11,926 feet long or 3,633 meters and is the largest runway in NZ capable of ILS on both ends. You may be wandering “What happended to 05L/23R Ben?” That runway was closed due to size and how close it was to the much more reasonable 23L/05R, where the old one use to lay now sits Taxiway Alpha wich runs along the side of 23L/05R. Auckland Airport is working on an expansion to the current airport with a new runway wich you can see here.
Auckland has a Domestic and Internatinal Terminal along side the hards stand litterd around terminals. Auckland offers many unique and beautiful destinations operated by a variaty of Airlines and Aircraft.
