A Brief History Of The Christchurch Airport
When you arrive at Christchurch International Airport you are landing in the first international airport to operate in New Zealand.

Christchurch International Airport was established in 1936 with an aerodrome at Harewood. Used not only as a training airfield by the RNZAF until 1945, but as a base for the United States for their Antarctic operations in 1955, this airport has certainly had a massive impact on New Zealand business and tourism industries. With air travel becoming more accessible in the late 1960’s we have seen extensions to all the facilities that continue to progress right up to today.

Now Christchurch Airport is a hub for both national and international visitors and the ideal place from which to start your car hire and holiday.

Why Tour New Zealand?
Worldwide interest in New Zealand has really increased over the last few years.  The internet and technology, in general, have created an broad awareness of our country, it’s amazing landscapes and history.  Having the best rugby team in the world and few famous movies and being filmed here hasn’t hurt either!

Driving New Zealand’s History
Evidence of the history of the South Island of New Zealand can be found everywhere. From architecture to memorial monuments, to museums, to the naturally carved stories in the land, you can discover it for yourself when you decide to drive from Christchurch Airport. 

Creating your own timetables and visiting areas such as the west coast Punakaiki pancake rocks and blowholes, created by nature some 30 million years ago, or historic Dunedin which dates back as far as 1100 AD with the arrival of the Maori to the area. 600 years later Captain Cook stepped ashore at Otago Harbour which later became an international whalers port. 

There is history all over New Zealand, trouble free vehicle hire can enable your own voyage of NZ discovery with stunning landscapes to enjoy, wildlife to meet, the best beaches, some amazing thrill seeking boat rides, and some energising walks.
