The resort town of Queenstown, located in Otago on New Zealand's South Island, is a massively popular holiday destination, particularly famous for adventure and ski tourism. Queenstown Airport is a suitably attractive, convenient transport hub – befitting a town that was once described by an enthusiastic gold-digger as “Fit for Queen Victoria”.
Flights to and from Queenstown Airport are mainly domestic – though there are a few weekly international flights to Australia. In winter, peak tourist season, more international flights are offered. Note that the terminal building opens an hour before the first scheduled flight, and closes an hour after the last scheduled flight, every day.
There is plenty to see and do at Queenstown airport – from shopping for ski equipment, to enjoying handmade chocolate – and easy connections into town ensure that the alpine serenity of your time in Queenstown won't be tainted by the time you spend in transit.
