Shuttles provide a door-to-door service to all parts of Christchurch and some surrounding areas using multi-passenger vans. A shuttle can be cheaper than a taxi but you will usually share the van with other passengers and the shuttle may stop at other destinations before your own.

Travel time from the airport direct to the city centre is approximately 15-20 minutes, allow additional time for the shuttle to make stops for other passengers. Prices vary by shuttle company and you are advised to ask before beginning your journey.

There are two shuttle ranks near the terminal for passengers leaving the airport:

  • at the Regional Lounge, between the terminal and the multi-level car park building.
  • at the northern end of the International Arrivals Hall, between the terminal and the long-term car park.

You can also book a shuttle through the airport i-SITE Travel and Tourism team on 0800 LOVE NZ (0800 568 369). The iSite team are located in the International Arrivals Hall.
