Gisborne Airport is located on the western outskirts of Gisborne, the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand and has railway line intersecting the runway!

The airport is a major link to enter the small region of Gisborne where more than 60 domestic flights fly and has 3 grass runways which cover a land of 160 hectares.

The coolest part is that the rail route functions actively and so does the airport every day. Although the railway tracks splits the runway almost in middle and very often trains or aircraft are stopped until one of them moves on! The authorities have to manage the landings which are scheduled arrivals and departures.

So if you are taking to Gisborne by train or airport, use your time precisely!
