Wellington Airport (NZWN)

Wellington (icao: NZWN; iata: WLG) is one of New Zealand's busiest airports, its central location and capital city status making it a hub for domestic and international flights. Famous for its wind and bumpy approaches, in the sim-world Wellington can be equally challenging and a fun place to fly.

It has one runway (16/34) and is accurately depicted in the default FS sceneries for both FS9 and FSX. In addition, a number of excellent photorealistic sceneries are also available.

Because the runway is only 1800m (5950ft) long, most real-world flights are operated by B763 or below. Larger aircraft can use the airport, but typically have to reduce the weight they carry in order to safely land and depart, making them less economically viable in the real-world.


Flights heading north can expect to be assigned one of the following departures depending on the active runway.
