This paper explores commercial issues surrounding managing airports in New Zealand. Airport managers face pressures from changing airport–airline relationships, low cost airlines, proposed new airports and the growing importance of non-aeronautical revenues in achieving commercial goals. New Zealand's airports have moved from an operating environment within which all the principal airports were owned and managed by central government to one where airports are run as commercial entities under a variety of ownership structures. New Zealand has a high dependence on air transport and for its size, a very developed regional airport network.
