Gateway to the Central North Island

Sitting on the shore of Lake Rotorua, with the iconic Mokoia Island in the background, Rotorua Airport is a key gateway perfectly placed for exploring the region and the Central North Island. 

Rotorua Airport is currently going through some major development

Passengers travelling to and from Rotorua Airport are set to arrive at a fully refurbished terminal which truly reflects Rotorua, allowing us to welcome and farewell passengers with the manaakitanga (hospitality) Rotorua was built on.

Our Vision

Our vision is to have an airport Rotorua can be proud of, that welcomes and farewells passengers with the manaakitanga Rotorua was built on. We’re committed to ensuring Rotorua Airport can meet the demands of the future.

Our History

Since opening in 1964, Rotorua Airport has changed dramatically, much like the city itself. We’ve come a long way, but we’re already planning for the future.
