Palmerston North International Airport

Palmerston North International Airport

Palmerston North International Airport is a progressive and growing business. The company is positioned to respond to opportunities to utilise the recently extended runway and to continue to develop the international activities. This is the Gateway to the lower North Island and the top of the South Island of New Zealand.

The airport is certificated under Civil Aviation Rules so that travellers and airline operators have assurance of the highest standards of safety and security backed up by quality control systems.

An airport is a community of businesses. It is likely that your airport experience will be influenced by several of those businesses.

We are all committed to helping you either use our services, or conduct your business at the airport. We welcome feedback (good or bad) as a constructive way to continuously improve, so do use this site, or one of our 'Customer Care' cards at the airport to let us know how your airport experience went.
