Auckland Airport has teamed up with Uber to offer dedicated ride-share pick-up zones at domestic and international terminals from tomorrow.
The partners are hoping to provide a service which offers an alternative to driving.
Richard Barker, general manager, retail and commercial, at Auckland Airport, says: “As the first airport to allow Uber access since December 2016, this next step provides certainty for travellers on where to catch their ride-share service.”
Users can get a ride from an accredited driver who has received a passenger endorsement licence issued by the NZ Transport Agency, which includes a background safety check.
Uber is to launch digital billboards to help make it easier for customers to get a ride from the airport.
