New Plymouth Airport's Car Park Being Extended

18 November 2016

Work has started on providing more public car parks at New Plymouth Airport.

The project will result in 56 more parking spaces, bringing the car park’s tally up to 380.

“More spaces for car parking is definitely needed as the number of passengers through the airport keeps increasing year on year,” says Airport Manager Wayne Wootton.

The new parking spaces are where a lawn used to be, between the current car park and the car park overflow area. Almost all of the pohutukawa trees alongside that space will remain where they are.

The project, which is funded from airport revenue, is due to be completed by Christmas.
