Sydney and Christchurch Airports
Trade the urban sparkle of “Harbour City” for the dewy foliage of “Garden City” when you board flights from Sydney to Christchurch. Take off from Sydney Airport (SYD), Australia’s oldest commercial international airport, and land at Christchurch Airport (CHC), New Zealand’s first international airport.
Sydney International Airport, the longest, continuously running international airport in the world, is very busy, but getting in and out is easy. Take the Airport Link underground rail directly to the terminals from city centre. Bus route 400 connects to all terminals as well. Save some time and drive yourself; the airport is only 8 km south of city centre. There are multiple parking bays that connect to the airport via aerobridges.
When your Christchurch flight lands, take a deep breath and enjoy the slower pace of this new place. A smaller town doesn’t mean a sacrifice of convenience, however. CHC boasts an ultramodern baggage handling system, as well as a first-floor retail area with many food outlets and shops as well as comfy waiting areas. To leave the airport, hire one of our Rental cars in Christchurch, and use State Highway 1 or Memorial Avenue to get to city centre, roughly 10 km away. Three city bus routes service the airport; purple and number 29 go to the central city. Or, you can take a shuttle or taxi into Christchurch. Meanwhile, The Loop is where you’ll find the pick-up and drop-off area.
Sydney to Christchurch flights clock in at just over three hours and fly over 2,100 km across the Tasman Sea. Grab a few of your favourite magazines and order a bubbly beverage; you’ll be at your destination before you know it.
