Dunedin International Airport (IATA: DUD, ICAO: NZDN) is an international airport in the Otago province of the South Island of New Zealand, serving Dunedin and the Otago and Southland regions. The airport is located adjacent to the village of Momona on the Taieri Plains approximately 22 kilometres west of central city Dunedin.

Construction of the airport was completed in 1962, and its primary use was to cater for passengers of short haul aircraft. In the year 1963, a total of 100,000 passengers passed through the airport. The airport received its first international flight in 1994, and in 1995, a total of 520,000 passengers serviced the airport. This figure declined to 481,000 in the year 2000 with a total of 19,000 aircraft movements in that year alone. It has been predicted that by the year 2015 aircraft movements will top 38,000 with a projected 1,000,000 passengers.

The Airport has recently undergone a major and extensive upgrade to its facilities with a bigger check in area and a new international arrival area. The airport is now up to worldwide standards in terms of facilities.
