Some airports play it safe, but apparently the Gisborne Airport likes to live dangerously.

If you thought the United Kingdom’s Gibraltar International Airport was risky with cars crossing the runway, the Gisborne Airport raises the ante.

The Palmerston North-Gisborne railway line cuts across Gisborne’s 4298 foot central runway. When operational, trains need approval from an air traffic control tower to cross the airport.

The Eastland Group operates the Gisborne Airport in New Zealand. Gisborne Airport can transport passengers domestically to the Auckland, Hamilton, Rotorua, Tauranga, and Wellington airports.

Gisborne airport possesses one terminal, two gates, and four runways. Passengers can visit the airport’s V2 cafe.
