Whanganui Airport (named Wanganui Airport until 2016) is the airport that serves Whanganui, New Zealand (IATA: WAGICAO: NZWU). It is located to the south of Whanganui River, approximately 4km from the centre of Whanganui. 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 Whanganui 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. Air Chathams now operates to Wanganui with a Saab 340A and a Metroliner III
