Nelson Airport is located about 8km from the Nelson CBD and 9km from Richmond.  The easiest and cheapest way to travel around the city is by the Nelson Tasman eBus, and The Brook - Airport Route 4 bus stops at Nelson Airport half-hourly from 7 am to 6:22 pm, returning to the city centre (see Nelson Airport Public Transport for more information). 

Alternatively, Nelson City Taxis, and Uber also offer services to and from the airport, to avoid delays we recommend pre-booking your ride in advance.

If you need help connecting with suitable transport, ask the friendly airport helpdesk staff for directions.
