Queenstown Airport

Queenstown Airport (ZQN)


Otago, on New Zealand's South Island, is home to the resort town of Queenstown. A great way to access Queenstown is via the small, but efficient, Queenstown Airport.

Queenstown Airport receives many domestic flights and a couple of flights from Australia during peak holiday season. The airport is well equipped with shops selling skiing equipment as well as tasty treats, making it the perfect gateway to a holiday in New Zealand's Alps.


The airport is just four miles (6km) from central Queenstown.

Getting to the city

The best way to get into the city is by taxi, however, shuttles are also available to be booked. Shuttle fares are cheaper for children, but cost extra for transporting ski gear.
