Wellington airport’s gates smarter

NEXT time I touch down in Wellington (and I will touch down in Wellington eventually!), another little thing will have changed at the airport. Well, it has already, actually.

STUFF: SmartGate is here. I won’t be able to use it, because it only works for Australian and New Zealand passport-holders, but that’s okay. – read more

I’m a bit old-fashioned anyway, so having my passport controlled by a

real-life person is okay. After all it has always been nice coming to New Zealand and having a chat with the person who gave me my little green stamp…

But I’m not saying SmartGate isn’t a good thing. I reckon for business travellers who cross the Tasman quite often it can fasten things up and make travel much more relaxing.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT SMARTGTE? IS IT NECESSARY? DOES IT MAKE SENSE? Please leave a comment below.
