Wellington Airport's original domestic terminal was built, as a temporary measure, inside a corrugated iron hangar, and was not replaced for many decades. It was known for being overcrowded. A major new domestic terminal was completed in 1999, and construction is under way to lengthen the south end of the 1936-metre runway by 90 m, in order to come within compliance with ICAO safety regulations. There are also scoping studies underway for a north end runway extension.

Since 1998 Wellington airport has been two-thirds privately owned by Infratil, with the remaining third owned by the Wellington City Council.
