New report claims Tarras can support international airport

From Checkpoint, 5:47 pm on 24 September 2021

Christchurch Airport has today released analysis showing Tarras - a small Central Otago farming settlement - can support an international airport.

The airport - which is owned by Christchurch City Council and the Crown - bought 750 hectares of farmland in the area last year.

But, as Timothy Brown reports, the findings don't mean the proposal is ready for take off yet.
