Welcome to TravelPlan!

TravelPlan is Christchurch International Airport's travel site committed to helping our airport campus staff make sustainable travel choices. Below you will find a number of travel options available to staff on the airport campus.

What is a TravelPlan?

A Travel Plan is an action plan designed to encourage people to consider changing their work travel habits through the promotion of sustainable transport choices and reducing single occupancy car use. 

By increasing access to and the awareness of alternative travel options and seeking opportunities for smarter working practices, developing a TravelPlan can improve travel choice, and reduce reliance on private vehicles.

Why Bother?

  • Taking a bus can actually be faster than driving to work - dedicated bus lanes allow buses to zip past stopped traffic and takes some stress out of your journey
  • No time to work out?  Walk, run or cycle to work.  You'll fit the exercise in as you travel and save time elsewhere in your day
  • You will save $$'s on petrol and parking by leaving your car behind
  • Car-pooling with workmates who live close to you will save money on petrol and let you enjoy being driven to work for a change
