There are a number of airports in Cook Islands. However, not all Cook Islands airports have regularly scheduled flights. We do not list the smallest Cook Islands airports, since there is no way to provide you flights from those airports. AirGorilla offers flights, hotels, and rental car reservations for Cook Islands.

The Cook Islands (Cook Islands Maori: Kuki 'Airani) are a self-governing parliamentary democracy in free association with New Zealand. The 15 small islands in this South Pacific Ocean country have a total land area of 240 square kilometres (92.7 sq. mi).

The islands were formed by volcanic activity; the northern group is older and consists of six atolls (sunken volcanoes topped by coral growth). The climate is moderate to tropical. High Cook Islands: Aitutaki, Atiu (Enua-Manu or Island of Birds), Mangaia, Mauke, Rarotonga (with capital, Avarua). Low islands of the Southern group: Manuae, Mitiaro, Takutea. Northern Cook Islands: Manihiki, Nassau, Palmerston Island, Penrhyn Island also known as Tongareva, Pukapuka, Rakahanga, Suwarrow also called Suvorov.

Tourism is the country's number one industry, the leading element of the economy, far ahead of offshore banking, pearls, marine and fruit exports. A popular art form on the islands is tivaivai, often likened to quilting.

Defence is the responsibility of New Zealand, in consultation with the Cook Islands and at its request. In recent times, the Cook Islands has adopted an increasingly independent foreign policy.

The islands saw no more Europeans until missionaries arrived from England in 1821. Christianity quickly took hold in the culture and many islanders continue to be Christian believers today.

The Cook Islands became a British protectorate at their own request in 1888, mainly to thwart French expansionism. Then were transferred to New Zealand in 1901. They remained a New Zealand protectorate until 1965, at which point they became a self-governing territory in free association with New Zealand. The first Prime Minister Sir Albert Henry led the county until 1978 when he was accused of vote-rigging. (airports)
