Wellington City Council and Wellington Airport are funding applications for consent to extend its runway by about 300 metres, allowing direct connections to Asia and North America, a project requiring investment of up to $300 million.

As 34% owner of Wellington International Airport Ltd, Wellington City Council will make a $150 million contribution, in recognition of the benefits that are likely to accrue to the region.

Independent economic analysis has found that, over 40 years, the extension has potential economic benefits to the Wellington region of between $389 million and $684 million in today’s dollars.

The city is now seeking engagement with potential investment and/or development partners.
