Hamilton has the third largest airport runway in New Zealand. At 2,195 metres, means we can accommodate and re-open the International Airport with cheaper flights in and out of Hamilton national and international.
According to Waikato Business, our district population has already grown 2.3% in the 2018 / 2019 Financial Year. As a city, we need to accomodate to that growth.
With Air New Zealand currently looking for a commercially viable Airport, – Hamilton would help ease congestion on our roads and reduce pressure in terms of infrastructure development.
