 NSN Nelson Airport Info & Guide


Where is Nelson Airport?
Nelson Airport (IATA: NSN, ICAO: NZNS) is an airport in Nelson, New Zealand. Approximately 1.2 million people use the airport terminal annually.


In 2006, the airport received restricted international airport status, and it has handled international private jets since then. In terms of scheduled aircraft movements Nelson is the fourth busiest airport in New Zealand. The airport averages 90 aircraft movements every day, with a plane taking off or landing every 4.5 minutes during scheduled hours.


Nelson airport is the home base of Air Nelson (Air New Zealand Link) which operates a fleet of Bombardier Dash 8 Q300s on regional air routes. Recently, Air New Zealand, (Air Nelson's parent airline) has expanded its Nelson base. The national carrier invested 30 million dollars to develop infrastructure in Nelson, including a maintenance hangar for Air Nelson's fleet of Q300 aircraft which are too large for the existing facility. Air New Zealand then announced that the Air Nelson maintenance facility would also handle fellow subsidiary, Mount Cook Airline's fleet of ATR 72-500 aircraft. Nelson Airport has also received permission from the Nelson City Council to international flights using private jets.
