Airport growth will bring jobs to people in South Auckland

Airport growth will bring local jobs to people in South Auckland

Auckland Airport’s 30-year vision will play a key role in the future development of South Auckland and contribute directly to local education and employment opportunities.

The investment in infrastructure over the next 30 years is expected to boost regional GDP by $2 billion, create more than 27,000 full time jobs and help lift Auckland’s household incomes by $1.4 billion.

Auckland Airport chief executive, Adrian Littlewood, says, “Our vision supports the Auckland Council’s focus on improving the South Auckland economy and increasing local incomes and job opportunities, especially for our neighbouring communities.”

“As we secure our position as a hub airport serving Australasia and the Pacific Rim, new businesses will be established at the airport and existing businesses will expand. This will provide new opportunities for the people of South Auckland. Educational opportunities will also increase as a result of our development.”

“As the airport grows, we will continue to work with our neighbours and other stakeholders impacted by our development. We are focused on delivering the maximum benefit to our local communities and the wider Auckland region. We are committed to playing our part to make Auckland a world-class city,” says Mr Littlewood.
