Wānaka Airport today
In April 2021, the Wānaka community was delighted to receive news that the High Court ruled in favour of the community. This was an historic decision of the High Court – it is very rare for a community to take on their council, and win. In this instance, the community won.
This means that Wānaka Airport is back under the control and ownership of QLDC, as a strategic asset of the community. We have our community airport back. QAC have been granted a management contract to run the airport for QLDC.
