Whangarei Airport Reviews

Whangarei Aerodrome (IATA: WRE, ICAO: NZWR) is a small airport 4NM (7.4 km) to the south east of Whangarei city, in the suburb of Onerahi, on the east coast of Northland on the North Island, New Zealand. The Whangarei Airport has a single terminal with two gates.

The Whangarei Airport has a modern air-conditioned terminal building with free wifi and a cafeteria (called Airport Cafe), which services Air New Zealand’s subsidiaries, Eagle Airways and Air Nelson. Whangarei Airport terminal was recently upgraded to include a glass walk through tunnel, to protect passengers from the weather when accessing the tarmac, and parking gates 1-4. The Whangarei Airport terminal has secure parking, and three rental car companies.

Whangarei District Airport no longer has an Aero Club due to a drop in membership and private flying. Flight training using micro-light aircraft is still available. A tandem and sport skydiving company (Skydive Ballistic Blondes) operates from their base on Gloyn Road. Helicopter operators Skywork and Twin Coast Helicopters both operate from the airport. One aircraft maintenance facility (Northland Aviation Ltd) is available, which conducts maintenance for Eagle Airways and many aircraft across Northland.

There are also several private aircraft hangars situated around the Whangarei Airport, including one that previously housed a Aero L-29 Delfín jet in 2008. Private jets are also catered for when they arrive about twice a year, as well as larger group charters which are fairly common.

The Whangarei Airport runway is lit by pilot activation of the lights, and Av-Gas and Jet A1 are available by fuel card payment.
