Christchurch Airport recognised in international awards

Christchurch Airport recognised in international awards

Christchurch Airport is the only New Zealand airport to have been recognised in what are widely regarded as the most prestigious awards in the airline community.

The airport was ‘highly commended’ for marketing and judged runner-up for airports between four and 20 million passengers. Voting and judging of the Routes Awards is by the airline community. Abu Dhabi International Airport won the category and went on to win the overall award for all airports.

Christchurch Airport GM of Aeronautical Business Development, Matthew Findlay, is attending the awards in Malaysia and says judges credited the airport with innovation and best in class execution.

“We are proud to be the only New Zealand airport to be shortlisted and then awarded,” says Mr Findlay.

“It was important not only to be recognised ourselves, but also to keep New Zealand front of mind for the hundreds of Asia region airlines and dignitaries who attended the awards ceremony.

“The award comes the same day as new statistics which show all our markets in growth mode. Our team at the Routes conference is working hard to keep this growth going and to provide a premium entry and exit point to New Zealand here in Christchurch.”
