Napier Airport (owned and operated by the Hawkes Bay Airport Authority) is Hawkes Bay's main commercial airport serving domestic flights to the main centres of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch as well as smaller centres such as Gisborne, Tauranga, Hamilton and Palmerston North . The airport is permitted to allow limited international flights for aircraft with up to fourteen people on board by prior arrangement.

Napier Airport is relatively small but with a modern terminal providing a seating area, cafe and gift shop, car rental facilities, and two check-in counters. Both long term and secured car parking is provided close to the Terminal. There is a Koru lounge for Air New Zealand Koru club members and meeting rooms available for hire. There is an internal baggage reclaim area where passengers luggage is brought directly from the plane within minutes of disembarking.

The second floor has a small glass-fenced open air deck, where arriving and departing aircraft can be viewed.

Napier Airport is a busy regional airport with frequent flights to and from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch on Air New Zealand Bombardier Dash 8 Q300 turbo prop aircraft. Nearly 425,000 travellers passed through the terminal in the 12 months to December 2007. [ [http://www.hawkesbay-airport.co.nz/Newsroom_21.aspx Newsroom - Hawke's Bay Airport ] ] Due to booming tourism and commerce in Napier and Hastings there is a currently a proposal being evaluated to extend the the main runway and Terminal for Trans Tasman services to compete with Palmerston North, which is approximately two and a half hours away by road.
