Christchurch Airport (NZCH)

Christchurch (icao: NZCH; iata: CHC) is New Zealand's second largest airport and the primary arrival point for air travellers visiting the South Island. It is also the main forward base of operations for the flight programme to McMurdo Sound in Antarctica.

It has three runways: runway 02/20, a parallel grass runway 02/20 Grass, and the cross runway 11/29. As in real life, runway 02/20 receives the vast majority of traffic in the online world. Runway 11/29 is not used in heavy traffic situations due to a significant misalignment of that runway between the FS9 and FSX sceneries.


Flights departing Christchurch for Hobart can expect to be assigned one of the following departures depending on the active runway.
