From the airport Dunedin International Airport is at Momona on the Taieri Plain, about 30 minutes drive from central Dunedin. Airport shuttles meet every flight and cost from NZ$25 one-way depending on the number of people in the shuttle. There are some direct flights from Oz (ex Brisbane with Pacific Blue) but most flights require you to change planes in Auckland and/or Christchurch. Within NZ there are direct flights from Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch, all of which have direct flights to major centres across the Tasman.
