Dunedin Airport is at a pivotal stage in its planning for the future of air travel in a dynamic and innovative global industry.


Dunedin International Airport Ltd (DIAL) has been giving a warm southern welcome to travellers since 1962 and was upgraded in 1996 to accept international flights. The Airport processes about one million airline passengers each year and manages relationships with a number of Airlines.
