New general manager for Taupo Airport



Rhys Frearson has been appointed to the role of general manager of Taupo Airport.

Prior to his appointment, Rhys was manager of operations at Rotorua Airport.

Rhys began his aviation career as a member of a Rescue Fire crew, before studying for a Diploma in Aviation, progressing to Rescue Fire manager and then on to operations manager. He also enjoys time viewing the world from the pilot’s seat as often as possible.

Rhys says he is looking forward to getting stuck into the new role, ensuring the airport met all civil aviation requirements and acting as the point of contact for the community.

"The Taupo district is a very dynamic place and I’m really excited to be here. It’s such an upbeat region and there is so much to do, I’m really looking forward to the challenges and opportunities we have for the airport here," he says.

Head of economic development and business development John Ridd says Rhys is taking up the role at an exciting time.

"We have the bones of ‘the best little airport in New Zealand’ due to the fantastic work of previous managers and Rhys comes to the role at a great time when we are primed for further growth both airside and landside. He brings the skills and experience which will take the airport to the next level," he says.
