More flights to

Christchurch

Qantas has boosted flights between Brisbane

Airport (BNE) and Christchurch with three

times weekly services now available year-

round. A fourth weekly service will be added

during peak Australian and New Zealand school

holidays to meet demand. Brisbane Airport

had been offering close to 100 weekly flights

to five destinations across the North and South

Islands and the extra flights are expected to add

28,000 seats a year to the total, boosting visitor

numbers across the Tasman even more. New

Zealand is currently the largest overseas

visitor market for BNE, accounting for

almost a third of overseas visitors to

Queensland in 2015. New Zealand is

also the most popular destination

for Brisbane residents travelling

overseas, with one in five

outbound travellers

crossing the ditch

last year.
