Palmerston North Airport, New Zealand
Palmerston North International Airport, as it is officially known, lies about 5 kilometres to the northeast of Palmerston North’s city centre. The official name is misleading, as the air facility has not had regularly scheduled international flights since 2008. Because the airport serves as backup to Wellington for diverted flights, the name remains unchanged.
In 1931, the Milson Aerodrome Society established the first Palmerston North Airport at this same site. The grass runway was used for private flights. In 1936, commercial operations by Union Airways used the airport. During World War II, the airfield was used by the RNZAF and other military. When National Airways Corporation brought commercial flights to the area, the runway was sealed and a passenger terminal was built. Today, the terminal has a cafeteria and bar, a bookstore, an art gallery, and a Koru Lounge. Regularly scheduled flights are offered by Air Napier, Air Nelson, Mount Cook Airline, and Eagle Airways.
The airport was the site of a Guinness World Records successful attempt. May 17, 1998, ten people physically pulled a Boeing 737-300 over 100 metres in 47 seconds. The attempt was to celebrate the new runways.
The cultural centre of Palmerston North, Te Manawa is a museum of art, science, and history.
