Auckland Airport appoints Carrie Hurihanganui as chief executive

Air New Zealand chief operating officer Carrie Hurihanganui​ has been appointed chief executive of Auckland International Airport.

Hurihanganui rose through the ranks of Air New Zealand where she started as an international cabin crew member more than 22 years ago while she studied for her Bachelor of Business Management degree.

Hurihanganui will start her new job at Auckland Airport in early 2022. Air New Zealand will begin looking for a replacement, hoping to make an appointment in the coming months.

She will be the airport’s first female chief executive.

Current chief executive Adrian Littlewood​ will finish on November 12 after nearly nine years in the job, and corporate services general manager Mary-Liz Tuck will be interim chief executive until Hurihanganui begins.
