Flying into Taupo visitors and locals alike are always struck by the size and beauty of the Lake. Located in the centre of New Zealand’s exciting North Island Lake Taupo has a surface area of 616 square kilometres (238 sq mi), is the largest freshwater lake by surface area in Oceania, New Zealand’s largest lake and is a similar size to the nation of Singapore.

Taupo Airport is the beginning of the Taupo experience at only eight kilometres from the centre of Taupo township and running alongside the lakebed.

With approximately 35,000 aircraft landings and take-offs each year the Airport is the springboard for the largest commercial Tandem Skydive drop zone in the world and offers a range of scenic flights by helicopters, floatplanes and light aircraft.
