Alexandra Aerodrome (IATA: ALRICAO: NZLX) is an aerodrome 2 NM (3.7 km) north northwest of Alexandra, New Zealand.

History[edit]

The aerodrome saw South Pacific Airlines of New Zealand (SPANZ) operate Douglas DC-3 services from December 1960 to February 1966; then Mount Cook Airlines used Britten-Norman Islanders from 1969 to 1991, connecting to Dunedin and Queenstown. Goldfields Air flew during 1985-86 to Christchurch. Pacifica Air flew into Alexandra during 1988-89; and Airlink during 1989. In 2007-2008 Mainland Air trialled scheduled services from Dunedin to Alexandra and Queenstown, but due to lack of patronage these did not continue. Mainland Aviation College, a division of Mainland Air, set up a flight training college in late 2009.
