Wanganui Airport is the airport which serves Wanganui, New Zealand (IATA: WAGICAO: NZWU). It is located to the south of Whanganui River, approximately 4km from the centre of Wanganui. The airport was opened in 1954, and services to the airport began in November that year.[1] In September 2013, Air New Zealand announced that it would withdraw services from Wanganui to Wellington and Taupo in December 2013. Sounds Air briefly took over the Wellington route, however this was later terminated on 15 May 2015. The airport has a single terminal with just two gates.
