The third busiest airport in New Zealand. Wellington Airport has coastal views and operates a single 6,827ft - capable of handling Boeing 767-300 and Airbus A330-300.
Opened in 1959 and located in the suburb Rongotai, Wellington International Airport is the third busiest airport in New Zealand, handling over five million passengers a year.
The airport comprises a small 110-hectare site on the Rongotai isthmus, a stretch of low-lying land between Wellington proper and the Miramar Peninsula, hosting beautiful coastal views.
It operates a single 6,827 ft. runway with ILS in both directions, capable of handling aircraft up to the Boeing 767-300 and Airbus A330-300.
Due to the channeling effect of Cook Strait creating strong and gusty winds, it has gained a reputation for sometimes turbulent and somewhat exciting landings.
