This Privacy Policy is subject to and should be read in conjunction with the Terms of Access for this website. The Privacy Act 1993 (“Act”) sets out twelve information privacy principles (“Principles”). These Principles establish rules for the collection, storage, security, accuracy, use and disclosure of personal information, as well as an individual’s right to access, and correct, personal information concerning them. Queenstown Airport Corporation Ltd ("Queenstown Airport") is committed to compliance with the Principles. Queenstown Airport collects, holds and uses personal information from the following groups of people:

a) members of the public; 

b) customers; 

c) business relations; and 

d) employees.

Personal information is only collected by Queenstown Airport for lawful purpose connected with a function or activity carried out by Queenstown Airport.  Personal information may be shared with Queenstown Airport's officers, employees, contractors, agents, professional advisors, and joint ventures or third parties in relation to the purposes described above. Queenstown Airport takes commercially reasonable endeavours to safeguard the privacy of personal information and to treat such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Queenstown airport may share personal information as required by law, court order, regulatory authority or the listing rules of any stock exchange, to exercise Queenstown Airport's legal rights, to defend against legal claims or as otherwise permitted by the Act. Queenstown Airport may share personal information with others where the individual concerned provides Queenstown Airport with their consent to do so.

Set out below is Queenstown Airport’s Privacy Policy for collecting personal information from customers or members of the public.


In accordance with the requirements of the Act, Queenstown Airport has appointed the General Manager, Corporate and Community Affairs as the Privacy Officer. The Privacy Officer has statutory obligations to:

(a) encourage and ensure Queenstown Airport's compliance with the Principles; 

(b) deal with requests made to Queenstown Airport for access to and/or correction of personal information; and 

(c) work with the Privacy Commissioner on any investigation into Queenstown Airport. 


In the interests of safety and security at the airport, it is necessary for Queenstown Airport to operate video surveillance cameras (CCTV), in the form of a closed circuit television system. All surveillance of this type must relate solely to safety and security issues, as they affect the safe and efficient operation of the airport. The Airside Operations Manager or the Terminal Operations Manager must approve any additions or variations to the Queenstown Airport surveillance system. Other organisations operating at the airport may also operate video surveillance cameras in respect of the areas in which they operate, as well as record telephone conversations via their telephone systems. From time to time Queenstown Airport receives requests from other parties to view surveillance footage. Queenstown Airport will only provide access to such footage in circumstances where the Act permits Queenstown Airport’s to do so. Queenstown Airport will ensure that its video surveillance is restricted to those areas of the airport where surveillance will not amount to an unreasonable interference with personal privacy. It must be noted, however, that where Queenstown Airport has any reason to suspect that misconduct or unlawful behaviour is occurring on airport, hidden camera surveillance may occur. In such a situation, Queenstown Airport will be under no obligation to notify the location or installation of cameras, however, will endeavour to limit surveillance to the particular conduct being investigated.
