Queenstown Airport’s new chief executive Glen Sowry said he was "made to feel very welcome" on his first day on the job on Friday.

"It’s always a bit odd becoming CEO of an airport company with no planes, so it’s a relief to see aircraft movements again," Mr Sowry said.

Mr Sowry, who comes from a previous role with leading retirement care provider Metlifecare in Auckland, said he would spend the near future "getting familiar with the airport and all its stakeholders".

"It’s really just getting to know everyone and knowing how the place ticks and fits together and of course the organisation itself, just establishing relationships with all of the team. It’s been great," he said.
