Air Travel

Airports serve the main centers but driving or taking a bus is best for other areas. Air New Zealand operates flights daily from Auckland and Wellington to Hamilton, New Plymouth, Wanganui, and Palmerston North; and from Christchurch to New Plymouth and Palmerston North. Budget carrier Jetstar also serves New Plymouth and Palmerston North, while Originair connects Palmerston North and Nelson.
