Our Partnerships

Biodiversity Hawke's Bay

HBAL is proud to be the Platinum Sponsor of Biodiversity Hawke's Bay. The partnership involves an annual financial contribution and on-airport exposure to raise its profile to accelerate biodiversity outcomes for the region. The partnership will also see the airport working directly with Biodiversity Hawke's Bay on projects to plant out additional areas at the airport.  


Hawke's Bay Air Ambulance Service

The Hawke's Bay Air Ambulance Service provides transportation for patients who require specialist cardiac or neurological services at hospitals outside of the Hawke's Bay region. The service is based at Hawke's Bay Airport and is delivered via a commercial partnership between the Hawke's Bay District Health Board and Skyline Aviation. HBAL has been supporting the Air Ambulance service since 2016. Since this time over $90,000 has been contributed to assist with funding for air ambulance and patient ground handling equipment and costs associated with aero medical training and education.


EECA & Willis Legal

Willis Legal are the official sponsor of the Willis Legal Bikeport, aligning their values with Hawke's Bay Airport, to move towards a more healthy and sustainable way of living and doing business. 

HBAL received co-funding support for the Bikeport project from EECA (Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority) under round 8 of the LEVCF (Low Emission Vehicles Contestable Fund), which had an investment focus on providing secure e-bike storage facilities.


Art Deco Trust

In the 1980's the Art Deco Trust was formed to protect the heritage buildings which were at risk of being demolished. The Art Deco Trust has grown into a significant and influential social enterprise that actively preserves restores, promotes and celebrates the identity of Napier and Hawke's Bay. The Trust is also the entity behind the Napier Art Deco Festival which has become one of New Zealand's largest and most iconic events. 

HBAL sponsored the 'Planes, Trains and Automobile' category at the 2020 Napier Art Deco Festival.
