Today[edit]

Are there any sources someone can add to the Today section? This section lacks citations.--Anderson - What's up? 06:43, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

International technical stopover[edit]

I would like to point out that there are international stopovers in Invercargill during winter. The term Technical doesn't mean it's an international service.. Best,--Anderson - What's up? 00:01, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

I think the "International Technical Stopover" section adequately covers the "technical" information. I can't see how Air NZ international can possibly fit within a section entitled "Scheduled and Regular Charter Routes".Those Air NZ flights are neither scheduled nor regular . My 2c.

Small is more[edit]

Operational Information[edit]

Some months ago I deleted the referenced but verbatim detailed technical information relating to the airport. This information has been re-added. I have checked other NZ airport entries and only Chatham island and Tauranga(in less comprehensive form) have any such "operational information". The edit summary of the revert says suggests that the information is useful and that it has always been there. "Useful" is questionable how useful is this for Wikipedia? "Always" is not an argument. I suspect it would be much better to provide a link to the official airways information - rather than needing to keep this copied information up-to-date. Wikipedia is not the place people should be getting such critical information.Andrewgprout (talk) 21:48, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

You are correct; Wikipedia is not the place to collect such information (not least because it is likely to end up being wrong when it most needs to be right). If I see it appear here again, I will remove it; and you and others should do so too. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 05:03, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Only city in NZ without a nonstop air link to Auckland ?[edit]

I reverted a statement added without references to this effect with the example of Timaru. This was reverted back with the reason Timaru is not a city. This is a questionable point but I think I concur with a note on the Timaru page. I think it is safest to not say anything here or at least reword the statement to account for the possible ambiguity.

"Timaru (28,400) once had a city council, but is now administered by a district council. It is classified as a secondary urban area by Statistics New Zealand. It is still considered a city and the principal centre of South Canterbury. Road signs state "city centre" rather than "town centre"." Andrewgprout (talk) 06:19, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
  • I have changed only to largest city to reflect the present situation at Invercargill.CHCBOY (talk) 08:50, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
 :-) Thanks Andrewgprout (talk) 00:58, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Hopefully one day Invercargill will have a new non stop link to Auckland when that day comes we can remove the comment.CHCBOY (talk) 06:58, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
