We arrived here on an international flight from Sydney and departed on a domestic flight to Wellington. It was easy to find your way around the airport. On arrival at the International section, NZ entry systems are are quite rigorous but staff handled them with the minimum of fuss and with a courteous and friendly manner. Such a contrast to... More

Christchurch Airport is cute. Small but beautiful. It is quiet. People are friendly. No hurries. Domestic and international flights leave from the same hall. Not far from town center.

We arrived just after midnight and even though the iSite was unmanned there was plenty of information brochures freely available for visitors to take. This greatly assisted our planning for the next day's activities.

The lady at the isite centre was so very helpful in suggesting where I could purchase essentials after my baggage was delayed. She also helped in confirming my accommodation booking and suggesting that it would be better to purchase a SIM card from the airport kiosk itself, as it would save me the trouble of running around later.
