New Christchurch to Kapiti service

From November, you'll be able to fly direct from Christchurch to Kapiti Coast.

Air New Zealand subsidiary Air Nelson will offer the new daily direct service between Christchurch and Paraparaumu and a special fare to celebrate.

Christchurch Airport Chief Executive Jim Boult says the new service is great news for travellers.

"This new service is a positive sign for the recovery of Christchurch and Canterbury and offers a connection we know people have been asking for," he says. "We know Kapiti Coast travellers are keen to use Christchurch as a hub to connect to services to Queenstown, Dunedin and Invercargill domestically, as well as our international direct services. Cantabrians will use the new service to access Kapiti Coast and beyond."
