“Combining modernity and tradition, the new airport captures the heritage and unique charm of Southland.”
Inspired by the aviation history of deer recovery in the region, the airport’s rugged sheddy aesthetics ensure it blends into its surroundings whilst giving passengers a sense of the area’s heritage. Created as a collection of inter-linked autonomous spaces, the new terminal has capacity to host three operators with expected footfall of up to 150 passengers at a time. Built to be as environmental friendly as possible, it boasts a wealth of energy efficient features.
