About Queenstown Airport
As New Zealand’s fourth busiest airport for passenger numbers and the gateway to Central Otago and the Southern Lakes region, Queenstown Airport is a key economic driver of the region’s tourism industry and economy.
Located in Frankton, a 10-minute drive from central Queenstown, the airport services the surrounding area with daily domestic flights and regular direct trans-Tasman flights. It is also one of New Zealand's busiest helicopter bases and is heavily used for tourist 'flightseeing', especially to Milford Sound and Mount Cook, using both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft.
Queenstown Airport is a Council-Controlled Trading Organisation (CCTO) with two shareholders – Queenstown Lakes District Council (75.1%) and Auckland Airport (24.9%). It is managed by Queenstown Airport Corporation Limited (QAC) which is charged with the responsibility of ensuring this critical national infrastructure asset is efficient, operationally robust and provides value for money. QAC strives to deliver world-class facilities and an outstanding passenger experience, and reflect the best of what our region has to offer.
