READY FOR TAKEOFF: Air Safaris makes use of the upgraded facilities at Pukaki Airport.

Air Safaris has completed a major development of the company's site on Twizel's Pukaki Airport.

It has involved construction of a sealed turning bay off the adjacent aircraft taxiway, and a parking area for company aircraft.

A large car parking and coach turning area off the airport service road has also been established to provide off-road parking and easy turning for larger vehicles.

The reception and office building, formerly on a temporary site arranged on the aerodrome while awaiting subdivision completion, has been relocated to complete the new site for operations.

The company's Grand Traverse from Pukaki Airport climbs north along the Ben Ohau range gaining height to the top of the Dobson Valley and into the Aoraki/Mt Cook and Westland Tai Poutini/National Parks via the head of the Mueller Glacier.
