Extra cool facilities at Christchurch Airport

Along with some nice artwork inside and across the terminal, which vacationers can uncover on this useful art trail map, Christchurch Airport has out of doors ping pong tables on its plaza and themed jet bridges.

The Caught on the Airport workforce hasn’t seen these themed jet bridges in particular person – but – however we love the thought.

In line with the airport, every themed jet bridge options flooring to ceiling imagery of a particular southern panorama, accompanied by the scene’s distinctive sounds and smells. Scents!!!

The themes are up to date occasionally with new sights, sounds and smells. However present themes embody the Mackenzie Night time Sky, West Coast, Kaikoura, Abel Tasman, Fiordland, a Canterbury sheep farm, Mackenzie nation, Christchurch Journey Park and a Marlborough winery.

A number of the different facilities we’re wanting ahead to exploring at Christchurch Airport embody the coloring wall and the complimentary Mini Explorer Exercise Books.

We’re additionally intrigued by ‘Spitfire Square,‘ which is a brief stroll from the airport terminal and residential to a health middle, a hair salon and a pharmacy.
