What airports serve London to Auckland?

When it’s time to fly from London to the New Zealand-based city of Auckland you will leave the UK from Heathrow Airport (LHR). Being the UK’s busiest and largest airport, it is well-equipped to handle the masses of travellers that go through its gates every day.

You can reach Heathrow from London central by travelling the Underground Tube train from many points, or alternatively taxi or Uber. When you land in Auckland you will be using the Auckland Airport (AKL), based in Mangere, which is 13 miles out from Auckland central. Reaching the city is easy via several bus lines that run from the Arrivals terminals 24/7. Rideshare is a popular means of transport, acting in a similar way to a taxi for multiple people at varied drop-offs. Taxis and Ubers are also easily obtained from Auckland Airports Arrivals Terminal.

British Airways, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airlines and ANA all offer one-stop trips with stopovers that range from Doha, Singapore, Doha and Hong Kong, respectively. More common are the two-stop flights, which are catered for by airline carriers such as Emirates, British Airways, Air New Zealand, Qatar, Sinapore Airlines, ANA, Qanatas Airways, Lot Polish Airlines and others.
