Below is some handy information on Wellington Airport, which may be helpful if you're travelling to Wellington -- it's sourced from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wellington_International_Airport):

Wellington International Airport (IATA code WLG) (formerly known as Rongotai Airport) is on the Rongotai isthmus, 7 km southeast of central Wellington, New Zealand's capital city.

It is a major domestic hub, and has links to the major cities of Australia.

The international terminal - partially built by the now-defunct Ansett New Zealand in 1986 - has been upgraded in various stages since 2005. On February 19, 2008, Wellington Airport announced the proposed design for its new, expanded international terminal. The design, nicknamed "The Rock" and penned by Studio Pacific Architecture and Warren & Mahoney, was a deliberate departure from traditional airport terminal design, and has aroused a great deal of controversy.

The upgrade of the international terminal is intended to double the existing capacity from 500 passengers per hour to 1000, and is also being done in anticipation of the entry into service of the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350. These aircraft could potentially fly long-haul from Wellington's short runway, opening up the possibility of direct air links to Asia and the Americas if commercially viable.
