About Hawke's Bay Airport

Hawke’s Bay Airport plays a vital role in enabling businesses to grow, connecting friends and whānau, and bringing visitors to the Hawke’s Bay region.

Our unique position within the heart of the region gives residents and visitors direct connections to Napier, Hastings, Central Hawke’s Bay and Wairoa. As a significant regional asset and lifeline utility, Hawke’s Bay Airport understands the importance of creating a thriving and growing community that will support Hawke’s Bay’s growth for the future. It also understands and facilitates the provision of critical civil defence services in the case of an emergency across the region.

As the third busiest airport in the North Island, our primary responsibility is to ensure the safe and secure operation of Hawke’s Bay Airport. We have a clear vision for the future which will guide the decisions we make in the months and years ahead.
