Parking at Queenstown Airport has got a whole lot
easier with the advent of new sensor technology
providing up-to-the-minute information on available
Cleared for Take-off
The future of Wanaka Airport is in the limelight and the local community
is being urged to get involved and help spearhead its direction.
A 100-year long-term lease was signed between the Queenstown Lakes
District Council (QLDC) and Queenstown Airport Corporation (QAC)
for Wanaka Airport in March this year and the operation, planning,
development and governance of the airport now stands with QAC.
With the lease in place, members of the Wanaka and wider Upper Clutha
communities are being encouraged to join in the conversation on future
development of the facility.
A series of workshops have been held and an interactive online
community hub has been launched as another way to become
involved in what is seen as a crucial issue for the district.
“People can jump online (our.wanakaairport.com) anytime and share
their stories, images, thoughts and ideas and see what others are
saying,” says QAC chief executive Colin Keel.
QAC will start a Master Plan process for Wanaka Airport later this year,
incorporating the thoughts and ideas from the community and other
stakeholders into the process.
Olivia Pierre, GM commercial and customer experience, says the technology
is another step in the company’s bid to enhance the experience of visitors to
“Real-time parking availability is commonplace across the globe and provides
customers with the information they need to make a choice about their
transport options when visiting the airport.”
The sensor technology means the number of real-time spaces at terminal car
parks A and B are now visible on the airport website and available to view on
desktop, tablet and mobile devices which means people can plan their trip
to the airport in advance.
Olivia says available spaces will soon also displayed on digital signs at the airport
roundabout and at the car park entry gate, so visitors can also see where the
unoccupied parks are when they arrive.
The sensors, which are currently available for terminal car parking only, were
installed late last year and fully tested over the busy summer period.
“In time they will be rolled out to the airport Park and Ride facility at Brookes
Road to provide a complete airport parking picture for visitors,” she says.
Real-time parking information is part of a wider investment in technology by
Queenstown Airport with other new initiatives to improve customer experience
planned later this year.
Queenstown Airport has been voted one of the world’s Top 10 Scenic
Landings for the fifth consecutive year in the annual PrivateFly poll, taking
out fourth place after Donegal (Ireland), Barra (Scotland) and Nice (France).
Support for Queenstown and its outstanding scenery came from all
over the world.
“I have flown to many places in the world, but emerging
down through the cloud, finding yourself right between
stunning snowcapped mountains on either side, with
the beautiful Lake Wakatipu stretching out in front
of you - it's just magic!”
