Stretching on the banks of the Waikato River, the New Zealand city of Hamilton is not only a gateway to some of the North Island's finest highlights, but a major attraction of its own. From the unique garden collections at the internationally award-winning Hamilton Gardens, and the interesting and educational Waikato Museum, to buzzing Victoria Street – lined with restaurants, bars, shops and cafes – and the nearby famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, there is plenty to keep visitors entertained on a trip there. Ensure your trip to or from Hamilton gets off to a great start by booking your airport transfer on Jayride.com today.

Hamilton Airport is located 14 kilometres south of the Hamilton city, within the suburb of Rukuhia. Prior to being a passenger airport, the site was used as a maintenance base for the Royal New Zealand Air Force during the Second World War, before scheduled domestic passenger flights began in the early 1950s. Currently, Hamilton Airport serves more than 300,000 passengers every year, the majority being domestic travellers. Book your airport transfer on Jayride.com to avoid airport parking fees and taxi queues. You'll also save yourself the worry of navigating a new city.

Hamilton Airport has one passenger terminal, and free WiFi can be accessed throughout. Passengers can purchase food and drinks from Mavis Lounge, while children can pass the time before the flight at the Time Out Arcade, a fun entertainment zone. An ATM and baby changing facilities are also available in the airport, and there are conference facilities for anyone who needs space for business meetings.
