About Queenstown Airport

As Aotearoa New Zealand’s fourth busiest airport for passenger numbers and the gateway to Central Otago and the Southern Lakes region, Queenstown Airport is a key economic driver of the region’s tourism industry and the wider local economy.

Located in Frankton, a ten-minute drive from central Queenstown, the airport services the surrounding area with daily domestic flights and regular direct trans-Tasman flights. It is also one of New Zealand's busiest helicopter bases and is heavily used for tourist 'flightseeing', especially to Piopiotahi Milford Sound and Aoraki Mount Cook, using both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft.
