    The number of passengers travelling through Christchurch airport is set to soar

    The number of passengers travelling through Christchurch airport is set to soar


    From today, planes and passenger numbers at the airport will ramp up to what will be a busy school holiday period for travellers.

    On the busiest days, the airport is forecast to see up to 20-thousand people on regional, jet and international flights.

    Chief Aeronautical and Commercial Officer Justin Watson says the three Fridays of the July school holidays - July 8, 15 and 22 - will be especially busy.

    He says it's great to see schedules reaching pre-Covid numbers.
