A message from the CEO
It’s a time of reaching milestones here at Nelson Airport and we are seeing some real changes to the landscape.
Our terminal and car parking redevelopment is well underway and the new Airways control tower is growing quickly. Piling is now complete for stage one of the new terminal and more contractors are arriving on site to start construction.
We recently welcomed our one millionth passenger within a twelve-month period - Abby Nalder, a 15-year-old student at Golden Bay High School who was arriving home from Auckland on an Air New Zealand flight. This achievement means we are the fifth-busiest airport in New Zealand based on passenger numbers, slightly ahead of Dunedin Airport.
Thank you to all our airlines, business and tourism partners and travellers for making this possible. We appreciate your ongoing support and patience while we build your new Nelson Airport. Thank you to everyone who is doing their part to make our visitors feel welcome and safe as they journey to and from the airport.
Chief Executive Officer, Nelson Airport
