As is the WIAL forward planning
Wait and see as to whether WIAL tag EMAS on the end of the proposed extension (2x100 M) or extend the RESA by 300 which would bring the runway into line with the 2010 masterplan. The problem with EMAS is that it cannot be used for a starter extension unlike a standard RESA.

ATR's only to Christchurch? - No chance. I hope this is correct
So possibilities are:
355 M + 90 RESA (and strip of course)
355 M + 2x100 EMAS plus boundary strips (access for rescue/maintenance vehicles for ILS etc
355 M + 1X100 extension between thresholds with reduced starters plus boundary strips as above
355 M + 2X150 M standard RESA extensions
I still prefer the last for the extra 150 M for takeoff and because it matches the ultimate master plan but any extension will be fine

Just thought about how we can make the airport safer for NZALPA
You realise that they are after either a 240 M RESA or 100 M Emas which are common overseas at airports like JFK and Heathrow. If Wellington is to be just as safe as these airports it should also have the appropriate snow moving equipment and the same number of rescue trucks. I mean maximum safety is the new standard according to the Appeal Court!
You may say it does not snow much but it did once and that could be a major safety issue. Of course in NY snow and ice is a major issue which is why EMAS was developed in the first place (and used so frequently) but you never know with climate change what is going to happen. So wellington Airport get out there and order that new essential equipment for the gutsy pilots who dare to fly into this dangerous airport!

OK, I guess I'm finally willing to admit this wasn't an April Fool's joke....

Eventually all the SQ 777-200s and A330-300s will be replaced with the A350, which SQ will end with 68 in total. But it will take time to replace their entire combined fleets.

Singapore spent a bit doing up the 777's so not likely to happen soon. It will probably depend on the runway saga coming to a satisfactory conclusion otherwise the Canberra link may be dropped when the 777 is retired . The A350 requires a longer runway than the Boeing. In the worst case scenario of course all jets will be "retired" as far as Wellington is concerned.
