Hamilton Airport

Hamilton Airport Hamilton International Airport is a growing airport, with a catchment area of almost two million people. Operationally, Hamilton International Airport has much to offer with the third longest runway in New Zealand.

Hamilton International Airport is the closest international airport to the steaming geysers and boiling mud of Rotorua, Lake Taupo and all its attractions, Tauranga and Mount Manganui, and the famous Waitomo Caves.

History

Hamilton International Airport started out prior to 1935 as a "flying paddock" and later served as a maintenance base for aircraft during World War II.
Scheduled domestic passenger services commenced in the early 1950's, increasing each year, and Hamilton is now the fourth busiest international airport in New Zealand.
Waikato Regional Airport Limited was formed in 1989 when the airport was sold by the crown to five local authorities. The Shareholders are Hamilton City Council, Waipa, Waikato, Matamata-Piako and Otorohanga District Councils.
Hamilton's airport has grown rapidly since the introduction of international operations in 1996. The Airport Company extended both its terminal building and runway to cater for the increased services.

Hamilton Airport Trans-Tasman Airline Operations

Kiwi International conducted a series of charter flights in 1994 and ran scheduled flights from April 1995 to September 1996.
Freedom Air International started trans-Tasman flights in December 1995 and is still operating, flying to four Australian ports out of Hamilton.
K2000 operated trans-Tasman flights from Hamilton from December 1999 to January 2000.

Domestic Airlines

Air New Zealand, Origin Pacific and Sun Air offer domestic travel connections to destinations throughout NZ.
A further domestic terminal was built in 1995 when Ansett NZ commenced scheduled services from Hamilton Airport.
Qantas NZ took over the Ansett operation in September 2000 and closed in April 2001.
Origin Pacific took over the lease of the terminal building in March 2002 and has increased its flight rotations to fill the gap left by Qantas NZ.

Terminal Expansion

The main terminal building was extended in 1996 to cater for full international services.
The main runway 36/18 was extended in length from 1740m to 1960m in 1988 to cater for scheduled services direct to Australia.

General Aviation/Industrial Development
The western side of the airfield is the home of general aviation users and hosts a small industrial estate with airside access. Eagle Air, Aeromotive, Hamilton Aero Maintenance, Rotocraft and Super Air provide valuable maintenance services for the aviation industry.
