Queenstown Airport

Queenstown Airport is situated in the Wakatipu Basin. They are within a short drive to Queenstown, which is regarded by many as the the "adventure capital of the world". The glorious Remarkables mountain range overlooks the Queenstown Airport and this view will greet you every time you visit our busy airport.

Queenstown Airport is the second busiest airport in New Zealand for take-offs and landings, it has the third largest number of international visitors, and has a significant domestic visitor market.

The majority of scheduled flights are domestic, with a few international flights weekly to Sydney. The winter ski seasons are busy with extra international flights being flown by both Qantas and Air New Zealand . In September 2007 the airport completed a USD31 million upgrade with increased terminal capacity and an extended apron for international flights. Weather permitting, there is substantial daily charter traffic of light aircraft to Milford Sound and on sightseeing trips. Helicopters are also very active.

In June 2008, Queenstown Airport Corporation announced plans to install approach, runways and passenger area lighting. Currently Queenstown airport has only Precision Approach Path Indicators (PAPI) available for pilot aid, so flying is limited to daylight hours only. The installation of this additional equipment could see flights arriving as late as midnight.
