Taupo Airport is a vital part of the Taupo experience.

Taupo Airport is a fresh and vibrant part of the local community, both as the point of arrival and departure, or as the launch-pad for the many activities the region offers.

Proving big is not necessarily better, Taupo Airport with a small management team and a four person governance board, provides efficient and safe air transport support for visitors, as well as local residents and businesses.

Taupo Airport is certificated under Civil Aviation rules Part 139 and operates just like its larger cousins hosting regular services, charter and private aircraft 365 days a year, weather permitting.

Taupo Airport is the beginning of the Taupo experience at only eight kilometres from the centre of Taupo township and running alongside the lakebed. With approximately 35,000 aircraft landings and take-offs each year the Airport is the springboard for the largest commercial Tandem Skydive drop zone in the world and offers a range of scenic flights by helicopters, floatplanes and light aircraft.
