Wellington Airport will be the first airport in New Zealand to welcome Uber drivers.
The airport will develop a dedicated pick-up area available at the airport from Friday.
The airport has reached an agreement with the ride share company, which will see the airport charge Uber drivers drop-off and pick-up fees of $3 a ride.
Uber will collect the money on the airport’s behalf.
Uber NZ general manager Richard Menzies said the agreement was a win for consumer choice.
The agreement follows the passing of the Land Transport Amendment Bill, under which ride-sharing services like Uber were recognised as part of the country’s land transport framework.
