Auckland is the largest metropolitan area in New Zealand, located between the Hauraki Gulf to the east and the Manukau Harbour to the southwest. The city sits on the Auckland Volcanic Field, which consists of about 50 volcanoes, so the city is nicknamed the â€˜City of Volcanoesâ€™. The city is also known as the â€˜City of Sailsâ€™ for the large number of yachts that take advantage of the city's two harbours. Auckland is known for its nautical lifestyle and its vibrant nightlife.
Travellers arriving in Auckland by air fly into Auckland International Airport, located in the suburb of Mangere on the Manukau Harbour, approximately 13 miles from downtown. Auckland International Airport is the largest and busiest airport in New Zealand and has an international reputation as one of the world's best airports. The airport has international and domestic terminals. Over 30 airlines fly into Auckland, including Air New Zealand, China Airlines, Virgin Australia and Jetstar Airways.

Airbus Express runs every 10 minutes during the day and every 30 minutes at night and costs $16 per person. Public bus 380 runs between the airport and downtown at a cost of $8.4 per person.
