Wellington International Airport - Terminal South Project

CENTRAL REGION

When the main terminal was opened in 1999, approximately 9,500 passengers passed through the airport each day. That number has since increased to an average of 15,000 per day, with busy days reaching up to 20,000.

The extension will add another 35 meters to the terminal building, providing a refreshing, open space with easy movement throughout the terminal, clear signs, more parking spaces for aircraft, and a centralized screening point. It will be a very comfortable place to welcome and farewell family and friends with new retail and food offerings, and double the number of toilets.

The extension to the terminal and apron will ensure the Wellington region continues to provide a world class, vibrant experience for its ever growing number of travelers.

Aquaheat supplied and installed the mechanical services to the extended terminal and south pier.
