Wanaka Airport chat looms
The future of Wanaka Airport will be discussed in ‘‘world cafe’’ style meetings on May 21 and 22.
Leaseholder Queenstown Airport Corporation is inviting the community to join in the interactive sessions, designed to inform the airport’s future development over the next 30 years.
The corporation signed a $14.5 million long-term lease for Wanaka Airport with the Queenstown Lakes District Council in March and is working on development and investment plans.
Chief executive Colin Keel said the sessions were open to all.
‘‘The future development of Wanaka Airport will have a significant impact on the region’s success. Potential growth can take many forms so we’re interested in talking through what that could look like with those who live, work and visit the region,’’ Keel said.
Other ways to give feedback include a new interactive online tool, our.wanakaairport.com, which was launched on May 4.
Peak Functions Centre, May 21, 6pm - 9pm; May 22, 7pm-10pm. RSVP essential at Eventbrite.
