Queenstown Airport has opened its first dedicated operations facility and emergency centre called the Hub.

The modular-style building features a new emergency operations centre (EOC), a control room, training spaces, and offices. The building will be where all of the Queenstown Airport operations team are based.

The operations centre also offers administration facilities, including staff and contractor inductions, issuing of permits to work, and CCTV surveillance.

Queenstown Airport general manager of operations and safety Mike Clay said: “As Queenstown Airport continues to grow, the airport operations team has adapted and expanded to accommodate growth within the current footprint.

“As Queenstown Airport continues to grow, the airport operations team has adapted and expanded to accommodate growth within the current footprint.”

“Currently the operations team have operated from five different office locations across the terminal, including the info desk which acts as a control room and administration point. The time has come for a dedicated location to better house the team and associated operational services and facilities.”

The Hub is an adaptable, sustainable and affordable building in line with the company’s guiding principles. It was designed to accommodate the airport’s continued growth.

Queenstown Airport believes that the movement of essential operations services into the Hub will also free-up much-needed space in-terminal for border agencies.

Access to the building is available from the landside rental car park, while secure access is also available on the airside. The landside location will provide easy access for non-security cleared personnel to the EOC if it is activated.

The centre also has additional facilities for use by all QAC staff, including a lunchroom with kitchen facilities, showers and storage, and a boardroom for up to 12 people.
