Napier to Wellington
My flight was a 9 o'clock flight from Napier to Wellington. I asked the reception to book a taxi from my accommodation for the airport on the day before my departure. Because there was no public transportation for the airport.
Entrance of the Napier airport.
A airport control tower in the distance...it was very small!
The airport was very tiny and there were only two check-in counters. However, it was spacious and comfortable inside the terminal building.
When I checked in my baggage at the counter, a ground agent said "Please wait for the boarding announcement at the passenger lobby. Your gate is Gate2". I wondered how many gates there were and went to find the gates.
This was the "Gate1"!
"Gate3, Gate4 and Gate5"!!! It seemed like bus stops lined at the station road.
The aircraft, which I was supposed to board, made a landing on time. It looked like a pretty small plane which I had thought....
I could see my bag being loaded on the plane. I hadn't seen such a scene like this before. I didn't have to worry about lost baggage!!
I enjoyed the wonderful view from a window at first. But as we approached Wellington the pitching got gradually worse. I'd heard that Wellington was well-known as a windy city. And the dark clouds were hanging low in the sky. I hoped that the weather wouldn't get any more worse!
