Christchurch Airport customer review

Not a frequent flyer but manage a trip to Oz most years. Domestic Air New Zealand area often crowded. Qantas domestic area less so. The domestic part of the terminal is quite old but has plenty of shops. It is unusual not being able to find as seat in the public areas. There is a good outdoor viewing area. The whole international terminal area is new and nice. As most flights to Oz and Singapore leave mid afternoon the check-in area can be crowded from 12.00 onwards. Buy your $25.00 departure fee coupon nice and early! The departure lounge area is all new and a pleasure. The whole airport is quite compact. You can walk from Int. arrival hall to the Domestic area in 2 minutes or so. Transport to the city is a breeze. Plenty of taxis and shuttles. Also $5.00 mini buses that go to the central city. Or take the metro airport bus for about $7.00. Buses run every 20-30 minutes and have GPS. So you can look at a display board and it will tell you when the next bus will arrive.

Christchurch Airport customer review

I have just returned back home after visiting NZ and I must say CHC Airport was a pleasure to use. It is nice and compact and people don't have to walk miles to get from A to B! The immigration staff were very polite and cheerful and there was a great duty free shop near the boarding gates. Even though there was 5 flights departing within an hour of each other to Australia and Singapore it was non chaotic and there was heaps of seating and space. Personally I felt CHC International Airport was a lot better than Auckland International Airport.

Christchurch Airport customer review

A small airport with very limited choice of shops and food outlets though generally pretty quiet. Queues are not a problem and there are plenty of staff on though some did seem to lack knowledge a bag of mine got stuck on the X-ray conveyor and the staff person did not know that the machine could be stopped let alone how to stop it!

Christchurch Airport customer review

I live in Christchurch so perhaps I am biased but I rate it as one of the best around. International arrivals is particularly pleasant especially considering New Zealand's tight bio-security systems. It's a great feeling to be back home! International economy check-in can get slow and crowded like many these days and the nearby coffee shop is too small but once in the spacious departure lounge peace and quiet rule. Domestic arrival and departure is somewhat airline dependant but luggage arrives promptly and it's no distance to transport and car parks. The drive to Christchurch must be the best start to any visit to any country.

Christchurch Airport customer review

Although it is not big by international standards Christchurch airport in New Zealand is a very nice airport. It has recently just had a major upgrade and is now a very pleasant and efficient airport with friendly staff and beautiful uncluttered facilities. Even in busy periods there never seems to be any sense of panic that one seems to get at the bigger airports. There is a very efficient and reasonably inexpensive shuttle service to the city along one of the most beautiful routes from any airport that I have ever had the pleasure of travelling on. Whilst most travellers to NZ seem to arrive in Auckland it is worth going direct to Christchurch especially if the majority of your visit is in the South Island of NZ.
