Queenstown airport CEO - our next focus is Wanaka

by Peter Newport - Oct 02, 2018

In a video interview with Crux, airport CEO Colin Keel has outlined his next steps after today's decision to freeze Queenstown airport growth - with Wanaka at the top of the list.

Mr Keel also concedes that Dunedin and Invercargill might be part of a future airport mix for the region, but he believes a balance can be struck in Wanaka between community concerns and airport expansion.

Proposals from Air New Zealand to build a new Central Otago airport don't appear to be taken as a serious proposition by Mr Keel.
