Christchurch Airport welcomed 6.8 million passengers in the past year and is New Zealand's second largest airport. The airport occupies a unique position economically, as the South Island's busiest and most strategic air connection to the world's trade and tourism markets, with 67% of international visitors to the South Island welcomed and farewelled at Christchurch Airport.

Christchurch Airport and Tourism New Zealand are partnering with all regions of the South Island to increase visitors to all the regions of the South Island. The 'South' initiative markets the South Island as a whole tourism destination, with all players working collectively and collegially. As such, we are very pleased to become involved with the 'Development West Coast Leading Light Business Excellence Awards' and look forward to honouring the finalists at the Awards Dinner in October.
