New Airport Terminal an Investment in Wellington’s Future

Charles Finny, CEO of Wellington Regional Chamber of Commerce has welcomed Wellington Airport's new international passenger terminal design unveiled today.

"The innovative design stands out amongst other terminals in its architectural boldness," Mr Finny said.

“This construction will enhance visitors to Wellington's overall experience. It is also functional in that it will facilitate increasing passenger numbers as well as larger planes in anticipation of long-haul flights coming to Wellington in the medium term.

"International linkages are critical to the region’s future and it is pleasing to see a company investing in something that helps bring people and businesses to Wellington and does so in such a creative way," Mr Finny concluded.
