Wellington airport comprises a small 110-hectare site on the Rongotai isthmus, a stretch of low-lying land between Wellington proper and the Miramar Peninsula. It operates a single 2,081-metre runway with an Instrumental Landing System in both directions. The airport handles turboprop, narrow-body and wide-body jet aircraft movements. It is bordered by residential and commercial areas to the east and west, and by Wellington Harbour and Cook Strait to the north and south respectively.
