Hamilton Airport


About the Airport

The Hamilton Airport is located north of the Hamilton CBD on Hensley Park Road.

The recent $5.2 million upgrade at the Hamilton Airport included an upgrade to the terminal, strengthening and resealing of the apron and taxiways, a new LED apron and runway lighting system including floodlighting of the apron, new office buildings, expansion of the car park and installation of a Precision Approach Path Indicator System (PAPI) to provide guidance information to help pilots acquire and maintain the correct approach. The upgrade also included the extension of the existing North/South runway to a length of 1700m. The runway extension allows for larger aircraft to land, bringing a wide range of benefits to the region including increased employment and investment, as well as improved social and community opportunities.

Council continue to advocate, and investigate options for, the return of a passenger air service to the Hamilton Airport.

The works were part of Council’s adopted master plan for the airport and also part of the Council Plan 2013-17. The master plan is designed to stimulate tourism and other economic activity and bring the facilities up to contemporary aviation standards, while meeting emergency service requirements and better utilising Council’s strategic asset.
