I caught the Airport Flyer with my four young nephews both from the airport to Wellington central and back again. Both times the drivers where friendly and helpful, the service was on time, the bus clean and the route great. However, it was not really the service the advert says. On the website the service is advertised as a bus specifically designed for airport travel with leather seats and extra luggage storage. Really it is just the same layout as a standard travel or city school bus - complete with all the usual warnings. The 10x a normal bus price extra was worth it for the airport pick-up and drop-off while travelling with 4 kids, but if I was on my own a local bus with the 10 min walk to the bus would have been much better value.

Very good service, used from airport and back to airport. Driver to airport assisted passengers with luggage which was unexpected and helpful.

It was in a reasonable price and good comfort few years ago before change to the current company

The price increase from 10 to 18 per person from Lower Hutt to airport, with no aircon, no screen of travel information.

Recommend NOT to use it unless you have to. Better use UBER

The service used to be ok but for the past few months it’s been very poor. You can only pay on the bus now. People standing from back to front of the bus. Bags overflowing. Drivers have no idea when the next bus might be so they pack passengers on

Welcome to Wellington

Have had to spend money on a taxi to the airport because the airport flyer didn't turn up in 40 minutes. They don't come every ten minutes as advertised. Utter rubbish service which needs to be sorted out.

Absolutely worst service, we waited an over an hour at the stop and eventually had to call a taxi shuttle with 7 other people because we were all going to miss our flights. Some of us had been waiting over an hour for a service that’s supposed to run every 20 minutes. We tried to call anyone to see if there was a reason for the delay but the flyer bus is separate from metro link no one can help you or even cares about your problem. DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE IF YOU WANT TO MAKE IT TO THE AIRPORT ON TIME

From Lower Hutt the bus is supposed to come very 20mins, and the trip to the airport is around 45mins. The bus didnt show and 40min had gone by, and with no indication of the digital bus arrivals screen for airport flyer I had no idea what was happening, same for the other 2 travellers beside me. I rang and got a "leave a message" response. Took another bus that goes into the city after that bus driver indicated the Flyer was "somewhere". In the city jumped out, found the Flyer circuiting from the railway station , so got on...it stopped for inner city travellers crossing town, not going to the airport, so was slow...upshot arrived after checkin and cost me $100 to get a later flight...3rd world service...

Located at the arrivals area outside the airport in the carpark. If your going to lambton quay, this is the best form of transport. Very cheap and easy. Bus driver was happyful. Make sure you have cash, as you can’t use a card.

My partner and I caught the 91 Airport bus at about 1115 on Monday, 6th May. We paid the $12.00 each and sat down and then observed other people with Gold Cards not paying. We enquired from the driver and said we could use our Gold Cards but he had not told us when we got on the bus. We both have grey hair so would not have been offended if he had asked us whether we had Gold Cards. We are not locals so did not know the system. No refund was forthcoming. On the return journey at 0630 hours we had the same driver. We got out our Gold Cards only to be told that they could not be used at peak times. We were not impressed. Will be looking at Shuttle Bus service next time we come down. Once we sat down we did see a Gold Card symbol hidden below the ticket machine which would not have been visible when we alighted the bus with our luggage. There was no information about times when it could or could not be used. The plus side is that the bus stop is very near our hotel and the bus takes us door to door just about.
