Okiwi Airfield (ICAO: NZOX), also called Okiwi Station Airfield, is a small airfield located near the village of Okiwi on Great Barrier Island. It has a single bitumen runway, and a small terminal in the form of a wooden hut. The airfield is owned by Auckland Council and is used for both general aviation and commercial flights operated by Barrier Air and Fly My Sky.
Okiwi Airfield originally consisted of a grass airstrip which was prone to flooding during bad weather and regularly had to be closed through the winter. In November 2013, work commenced on sealing the runway in order to alleviate these issues and attract more commercial operators to the airfield. The new runway took 6 months and $1.5 million to build and opened on 2 May 2014.
