Getting to and from Hawke's Bay Airport

The entrance to Hawke's Bay Airport is from the roundabout at the intersection of State Highway 2 and Watchman Road, Napier, New Zealand, approximately 10 minutes from the Napier CBD and 20 minutes from Hastings.

Check-in for domestic flights is a minimum of 30 minutes before take-off, but we recommend you aim to arrive at the airport terminal earlier to avoid queues and unforeseen delays. 

Dropping off and Picking Up

If you’re dropping off or collecting passengers, you’ll need to take a ticket at the barrier arm and go into the carpark but don’t worry, if you’re in the carpark for less than 15 minutes, it’s free. 



Cycling to the airport is becoming increasingly popular for passengers and the local community. We have undercover cycle parking located inside the All Day Parking area. Keep your eye out for the shipping container named the Willis Legal Bikeport. Here you can lock, fix and charge your bikes with ease.

Temporary Changes - Through Traffic

Due to the construction of the new terminal forecourt, the bypass in front of the terminal is currently closed. This means that all traffic is being diverted through the carpark.
