Air Bridges

One of the many aspects which differentiates Christchurch Airport's new integrated terminal is the number of themed air bridges showcasing the South Island as it has never been seen before.

Visitors are left in no doubt that they have arrived through the gateway to the South Island, with southern landscapes and an explosion of sensory experiences.

The air bridges feature larger-than-life floor-to-ceiling imagery, accompanied by the scene's distinctive sounds and scents (yes, really!). Visitors walk from their planes through the air bridges and many go to the travel information desk to ask how to get to the place they've just sampled.

Current air bridges include Mackenzie Night Sky, West Coast, Kaikoura, Abel Tasman, Fiordland, a Canterbury sheep farm, Mackenzie country and a Marlborough vineyard.
