Regional Airport Summit

New Zealand’s regional airport network is critical for economic development as well as social, emergency and medical connectivity for all parts of the country.

The Regional Airport Summit is a bi-annual meeting bringing together airport chief executives to discuss the barriers and enablers to lifting airport performance and delivering for our regions.

We identify the top actions that will ensure airports can deliver the infrastructure and connectivity necessary to grow the regions over the next five years, as well as the major plays that we think could shift the dial in the long term.

The Summit focuses the airport network on a set of priorities for collaboration with government that we can work on and track over time.
