MUSOLLA AT AUCKLAND INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

It is common to come early at the airport and waiting for your flight. For Muslim, if you searching for a place to pray, there is a dedicated place at Auckland International Airport. It is available at the 1st floor of both International and Domestic terminals.

It is actually a passageway but has been modified as a makeshift prayer area for Muslim.

It is actually an open area but very convenient

It’s quite open and there is no specific room as people are passing by the area. It only has carpet and prayer mat. Ablution must be done at the toilet. Having mentioned that, we really appreciate the consideration of Auckland International Airport Limited on providing this place.

Having mentioned that, this write up was drafted in 2017. About last month, I saw a posting at Muslim In New Zealand facebook page about new prayer room at Auckland International Airport. It has dedicated ablution and prayer area. I feel so happy for this progress. Kudos to Auckland International Airport Limited for the effort and it would surely make our journey convenience.
