Wellington Airport’s new multi-level parking lot is now officially open. The nine-story parking lot building has more than 1,000 car parking spaces and features a parking guidance system that informs drivers of free spaces on each level.
The car park offers covered parking that can be booked online ahead of time, as well as drive-up options for use on the day for any length of stay.
The new building will also house a transportation hub on the ground floor, which offers a dedicated area for bus and coach pick-up and drop-off (due to open later in the year).
The free public pick-up and drop-off areas have also been extended and there are new additional bike and motorbike facilities.
The airport has introduced a two-hour express parking zone near the building and close to the terminal.
Pippi Kettle, transportation manager at Wellington Airport, said, “It’s a great milestone for Wellington Airport and we think the public will like the new building and parking options available to them.
“We recognize that not one size fits all when it comes to transportation. We want people to choose the option that best suits them whether that be booking ahead to get the best rates, a drive-up option for a short stay or heading to the airport on a bike.”
A ridesharing zone, taxi stands, rental car zone, valet and a range of other parking products are also available for travelers outside of the multi-level parking lot and transportation hub.
