Plans have been in the works for several years to extend the runway at Wellington Municipal Airport. On Tuesday, October 18 the Wellington City Council unanimously gave the go-ahead to move forward with the final phase. The airport runway will be extended to 5,200 feet from 4,200 feet, allowing the local runway to meet various insurance requirements, and for bigger aircraft to land in turn generating higher fuel profits.

Watch the runway portion of the meeting in the video above (approx. 20 minutes).
