Gisborne Airport (IATA: GIS, ICAO: NZGS) is a regional airport located in the suburb of Elgin 4.2 km from the city centre of Gisborne on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand.


Gisborne Airport is one of the few airports in the world that has a railway line, the Palmerston North–Gisborne Line, crossing the main runway.


The airport has a single terminal with four tarmac gates. Gisborne Airport covers an area of around 160 hectares. It includes a sealed and night-capable runway (Rwy 14/32) at 1,310 metres in length, as well as three grass runways suitable for light aircraft.


It was announced on September 7, 2018 that the airport will be receiving a $5.5m redevelopment loan to ensure the airport terminal reflects the unique cultural aspects of Tairāwhiti, closely linking with the region’s navigation-themed tourism initiative.
