Alexandra Aerodrome is an aerodrome 2 NM (3.7 km) north northwest of Alexandra, New Zealand. The aerodrome saw South Pacific Airlines of New Zealand (SPANZ) DC-3 services from December 1960 to February 1966, then Mount Cook Airlines Britten-Norman Islander services from 1969 to 1991 with Goldfields Air flying during 1985-86 then Pacifica Air 1988-89 and finally Airlink flying during 1989 to Alexandra. In 2007-2008 Mainland Air trailed scheduled services to Alexandra and Queenstown, but due to lack of use, it has ceased to exist. Mainland Aviation College, a division of Mainland Air, is in fact setting up a flight training college in late 2009.
