How do you get from Invercargill airport(s) to the city centre?
The city’s airport, Invercargill Airport (IVC), is considered the gateway to the Southlands and New Zealand’s southernmost airport. The airport is about 3km from Invercargill city centre and offers a couple of direct ways to access downtown regions. You can take a taxi from the taxi stand outside the airport’s baggage claim, or book one in advance to know your fee from either Blue Star Taxis or Invercargill Taxis. Though the prices vary, the ride should only last about 5-7 minutes.
You can also take an airport shuttle, which often costs less than a taxi since you are riding with multiple passengers. Keep in mind that it will likely take you longer to reach your destination by taking the shuttle rather than the taxi because although a shuttle will leave you at your precise destination, it will have to do so for other passengers as well. Public transport is not available from the airport to the city centre.
