Chamber Welcomes Investment In Wellington Airport

Chamber Welcomes New Investment In Wellington Airport

The Wellington Regional Chamber of Commerce welcomes today’s announcement by Wellington Airport that up to $76 million is going to be invested over the next two years to expand and upgrade the terminal, extend the runway, improve parking facilities and position Wellington to take advantage of future long-haul flight options.

“This expansion and upgrade of a key piece of our regional infrastructure must be positive for the regional economy and for Wellington business”, said Charles Finny, Chamber CEO. “I know that today’s announcement will be welcomed by the many of our members. As was highlighted in our recent survey on the Wellington Regional Strategy, the lack of long distance international connections was seen by our members as a bigger problem than the serious road congestion problems in the region.”

“As well as being a positive investment in the internationalisation of our regional economy, today’s investment announcement will see Wellington continuing to offer the best airport terminal experience in the country. We want Wellington Airport and its shareholders to know that the proposed investment has the Chamber’s full support,” Charles Finny concluded.
