Hawkes Bay Airport: Napier

The Airport at Napier is billed as Hawkes Bay Airport. Despite the fact that it's in Napier I suppose that's because it's the only one in the area capable of taking anything bigger than a 4-seater aeroplane. It's a very pleasant airport rather in the way that Stornoway Airport is. A bit like home from home. Except for one HUGE difference. Here there are no security checks and no x-ray machines: just like Stornoway was 30 years ago. Mind you in the last few weeks they have actually started checking the tickets before you board. Is this the pre-cursor to more rigorous checks I wonder.

Wendy went off to China from here early this evening. I shall be leaving from here on Wednesday evening.
