The Three Amayorgos - Horowhenua Mayor Michael Feyen, Kapiti Mayor K.Gurunathan, and Porirua Mayor Mike Tana enjoy the Kapiti Airport open day.
Kapiti Mayor K.Gurunathan says today's Kapiti Airport open day drew a large crowd and was a great opportunity to showcase what is a huge strategic asset, not only for Kapiti but also for the region.
Mayor Gurunathan was joined by fellow mayors Mike Tana of Porirua and Horowhenua mayor Michael Feyen.
Mr Gurunathan says people were blown away by the size of the crowd.
"It was a brilliant day, a great crowd and perfect Kapiti weather. It was very good to have our neighbouring mayors here as well."
Mr Gurunathan says the Kapiti Airport links in as part of the regional transport network which includes the Kapiti Expressway which is carrying on into Horowhenua and the southern link of Transmission Gully which makes Porirua an even closer neighbour.
"Mayor Mike Tana said it only took him 24 minutes from Porirua today and when Transmission Gully is completed that time will be about 15 minutes which makes our airport an important strategic asset for neighbouring councils as well."
