Wellington International Airport

Wellington International Airport Welcome! Wellington International Airport Limited (WIAL) is one of New Zealand's three largest airports. For the year to 31 March 2003 it handled 3.9 million passengers, of which 450,000 were international. For the same year there were 112,490 aircraft movements. Wellington Airport has also recently been the home to Middle Earth.

Gollum, Wellington Airport's new star attraction, has touched down on Middle Tarmac. Gollum marks the world premiere of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King.

Gollum is 'precious' cargo and the airport will be keeping a close eye on our new Lord of the Airport. Wellington International Airport has displayed film sets, costumes, banners and hosted the farewell to the stars. The displays have stopped people in their tracks and attracted thousands of cameras and smiles.

Introduction

Wellington International Airport Wellington International Airport Limited (WIAL) is one of New Zealand's three largest airports. For the year to 31 March 2003 it handled 3.9 million passengers, of which 450,000 were international. For the same year there were 112, 490 aircraft movements.

The airport has a single 1,936 metre runway and is a major domestic hub in the regional and national transport system, together with providing international services across the Tasman to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

WIAL was privatised in 1998 and is now 66% owned by Infratil and 34% owned by Wellington City Council.

The old 1930s converted hangar was replaced in June 1999 by a $116 million terminal area development, reflecting the company's commitment to the growth of the region. It is a facility appropriate for a capital city and a regional and international gateway. The terminal is modern and efficient, providing new levels of customer service and at the same time the airport is acknowledged by Standard and Poor's as the most efficient in Australasia.

WIAL strongly supports many local/regional activities and has close working relationships with regional tourism and development groups such as Centre Stage, Positively Wellington Tourism and Wellington's regional development agency.

Terminal Services

Wellington International Airport The launch of the new main terminal building in June 1999 was a tremendously significant event for the airport company. Forty years after the first terminal opened at the airport, using the facilities of a former de Havilland aircraft factory, Wellington at last had an airport that reflects the lively, cultural, business and political centre that the city has become.

The shared use facility, where all airlines share facilities for domestic and international flights in a single, light and airy building, offers considerable commercial and practical benefits. It promotes customer choice between airlines by providing a ‘level playing field’ and lower barriers to entry by new airlines. It also makes best use of the small land area and existing structures and, most importantly, makes the air travel experience easy for customers.

The terminal services team staffs the terminal area 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Staff work with the travelling public, tenants (including the airlines, retailers, government agencies and rental car companies), taxi and shuttle drivers and countless others throughout the course of the average day. Airport Service Officers (ASOs), wearing black and yellow uniforms, provide assistance and customer service to all airport users.

WIAL owns and operates all terminal facilities at Wellington airport. As such, the terminal services team is also responsible for building, plant and equipment maintenance and all operations systems. The core of the terminal services role is the Operations Centre, which co-ordinates on-airport communications and focuses on ensuring the safety and security of the airport as a whole.
