    Default Nelson suburbs near the airport

    Hiya Nelsonians, were looking at moving to Nelson, and looking at tahunanui and stoke but seems rather close to airport. concerned more about air pollution like jet fuel fumes more so than the noise...and jetstar will be increasing the number of flights. any thoughts? thanks, snuffy

    We are further away from the airport (Atawhai) but would say that you won't have any issues with fumes or significant noise in most cases. All of the commercial flights into Nelson are turboprops so no jet engine roar or exhaust. The earliest traffic in the morning in around 6:30am and last plane out is by 10pm, as I recall. Depending on the wind, you might get some noise but it is unlikely to be excessive.

    That said, if you decide you want to be further from the airport and quieter but still close to town , you could buy our place: https://bayleys.co.nz/Listing/Nelson...tawhai/4000709 ;-)
