 NPE Hawkes Bay Airport Info & Guide

Hawkes Bay AirportWhere is Hawkes Bay Airport?
Hawkes Bay Airport (owned and operated by the Hawkes Bay Airport Authority) is Hawkes Bay's main commercial airport serving domestic flights to the main centres of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch as well as smaller centres such as Gisborne, Tauranga, Hamilton and Palmerston North. The airport is permitted to allow limited international flights for aircraft with up to fourteen people on board by prior arrangement.

The Airport itself is located nearest to the urban centre of Napier, and is sometimes referred to as Napier Airport.

Hawkes Bay Airport is relatively small, featuring only two check-in counters. Both long term and secured car parking is provided close to the Terminal. There is a Koru lounge for Air New Zealand Koru club members and meeting rooms available for hire. There is an internal baggage reclaim area where passengers luggage is brought directly from the plane within minutes of disembarking.

The second floor has a small glass-fenced open air deck, where arriving and departing aircraft can be viewed.

Hawkes Bay Airport is a busy regional airport with frequent flights to and from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch on Air New Zealand Bombardier Dash 8 Q300 turbo prop aircraft. Nearly 425,000 travellers passed through the terminal in the 12 months to December 2007.

Due to booming tourism and commerce in Napier and Hastings there is a proposal being evaluated to extend the main runway from 1310m to 1750m to allow medium-sized jet aircraft to land at the airport. A terminal reconfiguration, along with a full-scale security fence, is also planned with the intention of handling trans-Tasman services. Work begun in May 2010 and will finish later in 2011 and could cost $6 million.
