I have a international flight that arrives in Auckland at 24.00 I need to get down to Rotorua. naked bus has the first bus at 7.30am from the airport. Does the airport close and they will kick me to the street, or can I doss around for a miserable 7 hours till the bus arrives?

Hey,

Im pretty sure the airport would not close. You could search "Auckland Airport" at www.google.co.nz and see if it answers some of your questions.

I'm fairly sure it doesn't close - there are flights arriving and leaving into the early hours of the morning and the first flight of the day leaves just before 6am. I got there recently around 3.30 for that early flight and there were quite a few people around although none of the shops were open until 4am I don't think. You should be able to find somewhere to sleep.
