Auckland International Airport Ltd

Auckland International Airport Limited (AIAL) owns and operates Auckland International Airport. The airport is located on the shores of the Manukau Harbour, 21 km from Auckland's central business district.

It is New Zealand's largest and busiest airport for aircraft and passenger activity. In the year ended 30 June 2004 the airport recorded :

a 13.9% increase in international passenger numbers to 6,116.655. This is more than three times the growth rate of the previous year.
a 17.3% increase in international aircraft movements to 36,885.
a 14.4% increase in domestic passenger numbers to 4,640,851.
2004 was the first year in which total passenger numbers exceeded 10 million. This rapid growth reflects both the popularity of New Zealand as a tourism destination, and also the airport's dominant position as the gateway to New Zealand. Approximately 70% of international visitors travel through Auckland Airport.

Visitors are coming to New Zealand in record numbers. They are drawn by the country's clean, green and safe image, and by the popularity of films such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Whale Rider.

Company history
The company was established as a corporate entity on 1 April 1988 to operate the airport. The initial shareholders were the New Zealand Government with 50% of the shares and the region's city councils with the balance. A local utilities company later acquired 1% from one of the councils and the Government also acquired a further 1.6% shareholding.

In 1998, the New Zealand Government sold its 51.6% shareholding through a public float. The company was then listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange.

The company is listed on the New Zealand and Australian Stock Exchanges. Its trading symbol is AIA on both exchanges.
