Queenstown Airport Corporation (QAC) will rearrange the current layout to create a larger terminal area with enhanced amenities. Key elements include a fourth screening lane alongside a landside cafe and exterior seating.

This is the latest stage of airport upgrades destined for the Central Otago airport. It is renowned for its breathtaking mountainous approach and proximity to world-class ski resorts, shopping, and wine.
