Public Notice - Charging Error

Between 1 July 2019 and 19 August 2019, an error with some of the signage displaying our carpark tariffs resulted in users being charged a higher rate than was advertised for says of between 60 and 90 minutes. You would have been charged $8 rather than the $6 fee indicated on some signage.

We wish to refund the amount of the overpayment for all affected users. If you were affected by the error, please contact admin@hawkesbay-airport.co.nz or pH 06 834 0742 specifying the date and time of your stay at the carpark, and the registration number that was parked at the carpark.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
