Record passenger numbers at the Airport

30 November 2004

Record passenger numbers at the Airport

Following the launch of direct services to Los Angeles, Christchurch International Airport reported a record 29,702 international passenger movements in the week ending Sunday, 28 November 2004.

‘This is just the start’ said chief executive George Bellew ‘We’re gearing up for a bumper summer and expect that the records will continue to fall with the significant number of new services we have attracted.’

The recent addition of direct services to Los Angeles, the Gold Coast and Rarotonga means the airport now offers Canterbury and South Island residents and business access to 11 key international destinations or hubs.

The airport is well placed to cater for future growth with the final touches on the International Terminal expansion due to be completed before Christmas – providing four extra air gates and increasing passenger capacity by 37%.
