Significant expansion of Queenstown Airport car parking in time for busy summer season
Queenstown Airport will embark on expansion works today (Friday 14 October) to its short and long term car parking facilities creating a significant number of additional car parking spaces.
Due for completion by 29 November, in time for the busy summer season, the staged expansion works will provide approximately 50 additional car parking spaces to meet customer needs – an increase of over 10%.
Works to expand the commercial zone also commenced this week which will enable both pick-up and drop-offs for commercial operators in this zone. This work will be completed by 27 October.
To take account of the potential inconvenience to customers, we have reduced our car parking rates for the period of works in the long term car park (14 October – 3 November) for the majority of our car parking customers. Normal rates will resume once the long term car park re-opens on 4 November.
Queenstown Airport Corporation (QAC) CEO Colin Keel said the works formed part of the airport’s short term infrastructure improvement programme.
“The airport has experienced phenomenal growth with a 38% rise in passenger numbers over the past three years alone. This growth has presented us with a range of opportunities and challenges, including the increased need for car parking.”
