Christchurch Flights

Steeped in history and a wonderfully unique culture, Christchurch, known as the Garden City, is a small area with a traditional atmosphere and filled with a stunning array of flora and fauna that can be seen at the Botanic Gardens, the Orana Wildlife Park, and the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve. <br />When it is time to step away from nature, the locale also boasts fascinating museums and numerous entertainments, such as the Canterbury Museum and the Rialto art house. Although this city is quickly becoming a favourite tourist destination, cheap flights to Christchurch are still relatively easy to find.

Best time to go to Christchurch

Peak Season:

Christchurch's peak season falls between December and February. Flights are at their most expensive during this spell, as tourists gather to indulge in one of myriad outdoor activities available. This is a great time to tour Cathedral Square, take a ride on a Christchurch Gondola, or take part in the Carols by Candlelight in Victoria Square.

Shoulder Season:

The months of March through May, and September through November make up the shoulder season in this city. Accommodation and flights to Christchurch dip in price as many tourists leave the area for warmer, drier climates. <br />Although visitors thin out, this is still a good time to bike through Summit Road, amble through the Gothic buildings of the Art Centre, or site-see on an Avon River Cruise.

Off Season:

The coldest months in Christchurch are between July and August. This destination is relatively quiet during this period, so visitors who don’t mind the rain and chilly weather will be rewarded with ample leg room while playing at the Christchurch Casino, taking a Spirit Of New Zealand tour, or wandering through the Science Alive! museum.

Long time between flights. Will probably do a direct flight next time.

Nearly missed check-in deadline (by 2 mins). Ground Staff checked me in nonetheless. Was happy with chosen seat and orderly boarding strictly by seating zones.
