(Contributed by Tesh and Ben) We were in Auckland airport in transit early in the morning. We had over 3 hours to take a nap and wait for a connecting flight. We had been flying all night. We found a good spot near the AirNZ transit desk with rows of seats (no arm rests) we could lay down on. They were padded and quite comfy. It was pretty quiet there and there was no music and minimal announcements. In general in this part of the International airport there are plenty of these seats which are ideal for airport sleeping.

I don't expect any problems tonight, as this is NZ. Plus a few helpful information people told me I'd be all right. If you're in transit, even if it's over 24 hours, push them at BNZ to waive the departure tax. They'll do it if you give them your sob story." Added 28 August 06

(Contributed by Greg) - "I overnighted at Auckland Airport twice recently, once on the way to Australia, once on the way back. The first time I chose a secluded corner (upstairs near the cafe), and had no trouble at all, apart from a long walk to the toilets. I slept undisturbed for about five hours. The second time I noticed a bunch of other people sleeping in the area near Jean Batten's plane, so I joined them, but around 4AM they all got up to catch their flight and were very noisy about it, completely disregarding me, who didn't have to rise till 6AM. I couldn't get back to sleep, so I had to make do with only three hours' sleep that night. My advice would be to avoid areas where others are sleeping, and try to find a quiet spot on your own (but I realise that I say that as a male). Avoid thoroughfares and seek out corners.

They positively BEG you to PLEASE use them for calls to anywhere and anyone in the Auckland area. All part of the Kiwi welcome I suppose!" Added 22 May 06

(Contributed by Mike) - "Well i was flying from Melbourne to Auckland when the flight was delayed an hour which made the plane get in at 1AM, i didnt get out of customs until almost 2:30 or so. I didnt feel like getting a hotel so i searched for a place to sleep. IF you are in the international terminal, you go upstiars to the departures area, when you get up in the food court area you will see a sushi resturant, and a Coffee place over in the corner, well if you go into the corner where the escalator comes up, you will find some very nice comfy chairs to stretch out on. It is also fairly quite there. I had ear plugs so it was not a problem for me. Hopefully there will be some of these free as some other backpackers were already camped out when i got there. But it was a wonderful night at AKL airport. I used my small backpack as a pillow. continued >>
