New Zealand’s largest city – Auckland – must have one of the easiest methods of transport between its international and domestic airports that I’ve ever come across.
When visiting for the Christmas holidays, I flew into Auckland International Airport and then had to transfer for a domestic flight. At the domestic check-in desk in the international terminal, the friendly staff member simply pointed me to the door and said “Follow the green line”.
Forget about catching a bus (which is available if you prefer) or negotiating such a short fare with a reluctant taxi driver. Getting between terminals is simply a 10 to 15 minute walk, following a clear, wide green line painted on the footpath.
It’s impossible to get lost, it’s free, and a great way to stretch the legs between flights. Added to that, it’s probably even quicker than any of the other transport options, and certainly better for our health and the environment.
I guess I was lucky with the weather, but for my money, if it’s not raining, then shanks’ pony rules!
