Queenstown Airport (IATA code ZQN) is located in Frankton, Otago, New Zealand, and serves the stunning resort town of Queenstown, handling more than 700,000 airline scheduled passengers a year, which is growing rapidly.
The majority of scheduled flights are domestic, with a few international flights weekly to Sydney. The winter ski seasons are busy with extra international flights being flown by both Qantas (Boeing 737-800's) and Air New Zealand (Airbus A320's / Boeing 737-300's). In September 2007 the airport completed a $31 million upgrade with increased terminal capacity and an extended apron for international flights. Weather permitting, there is substantial daily charter traffic of light aircraft (mostly Britten-Norman Islander, Cessna 206, Cessna 172) to Milford Sound and on sightseeing trips. Helicopters are also very active.
