What airports serve Auckland from Cape Town flights?

Cape Town International Airport (CPT) is the only major airport in the Mother City, so you will be departing from here. Conveniently situated just off the N2 freeway about 20 km east of the Cape Town city centre, the airport is the second-busiest in South Africa, after Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport (JNB), and the fourth-busiest in Africa, after JNB, Cairo International and Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa. It handles about 10 million passengers per year (half the number of JNB). The airport can be reached by MyCITIiti BRT bus or by using an e-hailing service, which will take you on the N2 to the airport. Auckland Airport is situated to the south of the city centre, mostly on reclaimed land from Maukau Harbour. The airport has a convenient bus connection to the city.

Which airlines fly directly from Cape Town to Auckland?

Despite their locations across the South Pole from each other, and the significant South African expat population in New Zealand, no airlines offer direct flights from Cape Town to Auckland. However, you can find connecting flights with airlines such as Emirates and Qatar Airways. When organising your Auckland flight deals, the chances are good that you will be routed through a stopover in the Middle East.

What are the stopover options between Cape Town and Auckland?

Be prepared for some very long flights, and quite a bit of time in connection airports. Again, despite the fact that Cape Town and Auckland are located just across the South Pole from each other, you will have to first fly north, usually to the Middle East, before you then fly south-east to New Zealand. One such routing is with Qatar Airways, with stops at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg (JNB), Hamad International Airport in Doha (DOH), Brisbane Airport in Brisbane (BNE), and finally Auckland Airport in Auckland (AKL). Another is with Emirates, with stops at Dubai International Airport (DXB), Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL), and finally Auckland Airport. In some cases, the flight from Dubai to Auckland is non-stop. This flight is one of the longest in the world, at over 17h. Total travel time between Cape Town and Auckland can be a whopping 70h, so be sure to rest before departure and on your flights, and drink lots of water so that you remain hydrated.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly from Cape Town to Auckland?

Unless you have been granted residency in New Zealand while you apply for citizenship, you will need both your passport and a visa to get to Auckland if you’re on an SA passport. Be sure to apply at least six months in advance. Costs for the visa are around R500, but there may be additional charges if you work through a visa service.
