Queenstown Airport

Fresh, Practical, Simple

Queenstown is one of New Zealand’s tourism hot spots, and a destination for adventure seekers and Tolkien fans from all around the world. Its airport is one of the country’s busiest, welcoming well over a million people to the Land of the Long White Cloud each year. It’s also regarded as one of the world’s most scenic airports.

The Queenstown Airport Corporation believes in making a good impression – from the moment a person lands to the minute they leave. Urban Effects was involved in the refurbishment of the airport’s outdoor precinct to further enhance the amenities available to arriving and departing passengers.

A large number of bench seats were installed throughout the outdoor spaces at the front of the airport, car park and bus shelter. Items from the Liffiton Outdoor Furniture Range were selected for their stylish, contemporary design and their ability to withstand high use and hard weather conditions.

The sleek, flat lines of the benches were the perfect complement to the airport’s modern exterior and offer visitors a comfortable place to pause and take in the breathtaking views to the rugged, snow-capped Remarkables mountain range.
