At all times when you’re airside and not in a vehicle or aircraft, please wear a hi-visibility vest or other clothing compliant with NZS 4602.1:2011 for day/night use. It’s great to see many pilots taking this initiative already. These items are generally cheap and easy to get, there’s no excuse!
Please avoid using mobile phones when walking around – watch where you’re going!
Mobile phone use is prohibited around the fuel pumps.
Rotorua Airport has a ‘no animals’ policy. The exceptions are:
- Animals for carriage on an airline service that are secured in a cage approved for air transport
- A disability assist dog (as defined in section 2 of the Dog Control Act 1996) that is restrained by a harness and is assisting a person with a disability; or
- a dog controlled by a constable or Customs or other Airport officer performing official duties
Please DO NOT bring your pet with you. There are many things here which may distress an animal and cause them to run off, including pyrotechnics which we use for bird control. Loose animals are a serious hazard to aircraft and will be dealt with according to our standard ‘wildlife management’ procedures.
Smoking on site
Smoking is not permitted anywhere at Rotorua Airport except for in the smokers’ hut in the short term carpark, directly opposite the Departures Terminal. This ‘no smoking’ rule includes private hangars.
