Auckland Airport is located about 20 km from the city. It consists of two Terminals: Auckland Domestic, for internal connections to the country, ed Auckland International for international connections.
Typically, from Europe, it takes about 24 hours to reach Auckland Airport. Therefore, it is always preferable to make a stop, otherwise it would take at least a couple of days to dispose of the time zone or travel stress.
Having said that, it is quite obvious that the solutions can be multiple, calling at Dubai, Hong Kong, Seoul, or, again, New York and Los Angeles. Journey times are approximately 4 hours to Sydney, 11 hours to Singapore, 13 hours to Los Angeles and 24 hours to London. Obviously, we must take into account any stopovers.
