 +
* [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auckland_Airport Auckland] is New Zealand's biggest airport, and the fourth biggest in Australasia, meaning you can fly directly from any airport in the Pacific.
 +
* The conference is taking place near the summer holiday peak so you will need to book your flights and accommodation as early as possible to get the cheapest rates.
 +
* Flying from the US? Remember that you're flying into the future! Don't forget to take this into account and check what day and local time you arrive.
 +
=== Immigration requirements ===
 +
* [http://glossary.immigration.govt.nz/australiancitizensandresidents.htm Australian] citizens and permanent residents do not usually need a visa to travel to New Zealand.
 +
* If you are from a visa-waiver country (including USA, most of the EU, Japan) and intending to visit for no more three months, then you do not need a visa.
 +
* Check the [http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/visit/ Immigration New Zealand website] for details
 +
* [http://www.customs.govt.nz/inprivate/Pages/default.aspx Customs] advice for visiting New Zealand. Note that New Zealand has stronger restrictions on bringing in food and other products that may host agricultural pests than most countries.
 +
=== Airport to venue transfers ===
 +
Auckland airport has buses, shuttles and taxis available. Note that the Auckland domestic and international airports are about 1 km apart, so ensure you order a taxi to the correct location.

 +
* Uber has a fixed price $70 fare to or from Auckland Airport to an area which includes the University of Auckland (where the conference is held) and our accommodation.
 +
* http://taxi.co.nz is a facility run by Air NZ. It is a price comparison facility that includes airbus, taxi, shuttles and even helicopter. Note there's a slight surcharge for its use. In order to secure those prices, you need to book + pay for it via the website. I haven't used it before but I can see how it is useful.
  
The intent of this page is to allow conf organisers to know who's expected at the airport when.

 +
* Not all shuttle services have the same fee. So ask before you hop on.
 +
* Some don't like shuttles because you may have other passengers in there to drop off along the way. Most cases they try to group all to the CBD. Obviously problem is not there if there's a few LCA ppl in the shuttle.
  
You might also be able to use the info below to connect up with people who are on the same flight as you, arrange taxi shares, and so on, so '''leave some contact info''' in the entries that you create.

  • Auckland is New Zealand's biggest airport, and the fourth biggest in Australasia, meaning you can fly directly from any airport in the Pacific.
  • The conference is taking place near the summer holiday peak so you will need to book your flights and accommodation as early as possible to get the cheapest rates.
  • Flying from the US? Remember that you're flying into the future! Don't forget to take this into account and check what day and local time you arrive.

Immigration requirements

  • Australian citizens and permanent residents do not usually need a visa to travel to New Zealand.
  • If you are from a visa-waiver country (including USA, most of the EU, Japan) and intending to visit for no more three months, then you do not need a visa.
  • Check the Immigration New Zealand website for details
  • Customs advice for visiting New Zealand. Note that New Zealand has stronger restrictions on bringing in food and other products that may host agricultural pests than most countries.

Airport to venue transfers
