Queenstown Airport (NZQN)

*Queenstown Airport has to be the most scenic airport with a beautiful and challenging approach. Queenstown Airport is located in Frankton, Otago, New Zealand, and serves the resort town of Queenstown. The airport is 8 km from the Queenstown CBD. The airport handled 2.25 million passengers as of 2018 making it the fourth busiest airport in New Zealand by passenger traffic. Queenstown Airport has a single terminal which handles both international and domestic flights.
The airport doesn’t have airbridges and hence passengers need to walk to the terminal or to the aircraft.

Queenstown airport is close to @MJhendo heart and being the expert he is, he’ll be manning the radar there. For some extra help and preparation , have a look at this community link.
