Queenstown Lakes District Council commences review into Queenstown Airport Corporation SoI

    Queenstown Lakes District Council commenced its review into the draft statement of intent (SoI) from Queenstown Airport Corporation (QAC), outlining a “dual airport” strategy for Wanaka Airport and Queenstown Airport (The Wanaka Sun, 14-Mar-2019). QAC stated: “Ultimately, we’re aiming to bring the long term planning for Queenstown and Wanaka airports together into a dual airport proposition at the end of the year [2019]. This will provide a 30 year roadmap for sustainable airport growth, including infrastructure development, noise planning and transport connectivity, and will complement regional planning for transport and other infrastructure needs”.
