Social Responsibility

We aim to manage our operations efficiently, to care for our environment, our people, support the local economy and to give back to the community.

At Wellington Airport we are proud of our team spirit and passion for promoting New Zealand’s capital city and the region.

Equally important is our contribution to the Wellington community and New Zealand economy, the people we employ and environmental sustainability.

As the gateway to Central New Zealand, Wellington Airport helps businesses to prosper and tourism to flourish, as well as generating employment for at least 1,500 people on the airport precinct and close to 11,000 in the local economy. We are also a proud supporter of Wellington events and community organisations.

Airport activities do however contribute to traffic congestion, noise and carbon emissions. We understand our corporate responsibility to manage a sustainable operation that delivers exceptional growth and enhances customer experience whilst doing everything we can to care for our people, our community and the environment.

Our annual review outlines our activities across these core areas and our priorities for the future.
