There are several domestic flights each day through Air New Zealand and the domestic airport is a 10minute drive from the CBD.  For international connections, it is recommended to fly domestically via Auckland as there are several flights a day between Auckland and Palmerston North.  If the international flight is with Air New Zealand then when you check-in in Palmerston North the international flight will also be checked in.  If not then allow enough time in Auckland to check in for the international flight.
