The Auckland Airport expansion and redevelopment will deliver a new second runway as well as combine the currently separated international and domestic terminals.
The program, initially envisioned to be delivered in four phases with eight anchor projects, has been reset due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, with progress on major works to be governed by the pace of aviation recovery. The reset plan identifies four anchor projects, with the other four on hold.
The four anchor projects in the August 2021 reset plan are:
- the Domestic Jet Hub (NZ$1 billion plus)
- Northern Network and SH20B improvements (NZ$160 million)
- a transport hub (approximately NZ$200 million), and
- ongoing upgrades to existing domestic terminal (NZ$75 million).
Previous anchor projects on hold as of August 2021 are:
- expansion of international airfield and taxiway capacity
- new cargo precinct
- new international arrivals area, and
- second runway.
