Meet the team

Murray Bell
Airport Manager

If you’ve ever flown in or out of Tairāwhiti, or been to pick up or drop off visitors, chances are you’ve met Murray. He’s been Airport Manager for over 17 years, which means he’s seen literally hundreds of thousands of flights – and millions of passengers – come and go. Murray kept everything working smoothly while we built our new terminal, and knows pretty much all there is to know about aviation. When he has any time off, he likes to head into the bush.

Aaron Lum
Airport Operations Manager

Meet Aaron Lum. With a passion for aviation and customer service, he’s our Airport Operations Manager. Aaron grew up in Gisborne after a small stint up the coast in Tokomaru Bay. Spending his early childhood years around Bell helicopters and his free time flying in a flight simulator, Aaron is a natural fit for the job. Keep an eye out for Aaron on your next visit to Gisborne Airport. If you have any questions about anything from car parking to terminal facilities or even about Star Wars (he’s an avid fan), he’s here to help.
