Christchurch Airport in New Zealand has unveiled its new vision for the airport in 2040, including an expanded terminal and simplified wayfinding. A series of minor runway extensions would also cater for larger and more frequent aircraft, without creating more noise for local residents.
The latest masterplan aims to provide a framework that delivers future growth while making the most of innovations in technology and sustainable management. The improvements will enable the airport to cope with a 65% increase in aircraft movements by 2040, with passenger numbers expected to reach 12 million annually by this date.
