QANTAS restarts Christchurch Airport passenger operations

Qantas restarted service to Christchurch from its Sydney hub ahead of the Easter break. 

Using the 737-800, the flight ramps up to daily service in May. The flight start coincided with the New Zealand border opening to Australian residents.

Christchurch will be hosting the recommencement of 737 services to Melbourne and Brisbane  in May.

Qantas has operated high-frequency freighter services between Christchurch and Sydney using the Boeing 767-300F throughout the Covid lockdown period. These flights will supplement the QF passenger services at Christchurch.

Our Tasman market is rebuilding rapidly with passenger loads on both Air NZ and Qantas hitting 100%.
