Featuring two parallel runways and two independent terminals, the airport is located 21 km south of the Auckland city center. Auckland is the fourth largest international airport in Oceania behind Sydney Kingsford Smith, Melbourne Tullamarine, and Brisbane International, handling an average of 12 million passengers annually. The airport officially opened for international services in January 1966, and has recently undergone extensive renovations in order to be fully ready for the arrival of the Airbus A380 and air travel in the 21st century.
