More Flying through New Plymouth

Record passenger numbers do not mean New Plymouth airport terminal is likely to be extended anytime soon, says New Plymouth Mayor Harry Duynhoven. Last month 27,736 passengers arrived or departed from the airport, the highest ever in one month. This came hard on the heels of a record July to September quarter when 78,408 people began or ended their journey at New Plymouth's airport. With December traditionally a busy month the facility is on track to reach 300,000 passengers, the number used in the past as a trigger point for increasing the size of the terminal building.
