Kāpiti Coast Airport Opens Its Doors to the Community On Sunday 5 August

Kapiti Coast Airport and Kāpiti Coast District Council have announced a community open day will be held at the Kapiti Coast Airport on Sunday 5 August, 10am to 3pm.

Several members of the Air Chathams team will be on site for the open day, and visitors will have the opportunity to see the Saab 340 that will soon be flying between Kāpiti and Auckland, with the option to purchase scenic rides of Air Chathams’ DC3.

“We’ll be bringing all the team and aircraft we can to give Kāpiti a real live taste of who we really are, and the kind of customer experience they can expect from our crews and the planes they fly,” Mr Emeny said.

There will also be of about 20 other modern and historic aircraft on display, including those operated by other airport providers, including Soundsair, Heliworx and the Kāpiti Aero Club.

Some providers will be offering flights to the public, and visitors will be able to purchase food from iLand café and food trucks set up for the day.
