Tauranga Airport (TRG) is located between Tauranga and Mount Maunganui, around 3km from Tauranga city centre.
The airport is served by Air New Zealand, which has flights from Tauranga to Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington. Barrier Air and Sunair also operate from Tauranga Airport, with both airlines flying to Claris on Great Barrier Island and Sunair also operating flights to Gisborne, Motiti Island, Whitianga and Auckland’s small North Shore Airport.
The airport is not served by local buses, although local bus routes 1, 2 and 33 stop on Hewletts Road around a 10-minute walk from the airport terminal. Get off the bus when you see the big Bunnings Warehouse store and walk down Jean Batten Drive.
