Christchurch Airport Accommodation

As with any city that you visit for business or pleasure, it is convenient to stay in motel accommodation that is close to an airport. At 298 Westside Motor Lodge, we bring you the convenience of our motel being just a 10 minute's drive from Christchurch Airport.

Christchurch Airport became New Zealand's first international airport in 1950 and today it is the country's second busiest airport. It has direct flights to 18 domestic destinations and 11 international destinations.

Jetstar, Qantas and Air New Zealand operate from Christchurch Airport to various destinations within New Zealand.

Interestingly enough, in 2013, Christchurch airport started removing passengers who attempted to use the airport seating and floor area as free accommodation. 298 Westside on Riccarton Road has opened its motel accommodation arms to those in need of place to sleep for those coming and going from Christchurch Airport.

Christchurch Airport is the stepping stone to the South Island for tourists and locals. It has recently undergone significant development, with new domestic terminal facilities and additional car parking. Unlike Auckland Airport, the domestic and international terminals at Christchurch Airport are located in the same building, which prevents extra, unwanted travel between them.

Getting to Christchurch Airport

It is just 10 minutes drive from your motel accommodation at 298 Westside Motor Lodge on Riccarton Road. The bus service is the cheapest way to get to and from your motel in Christchurch city and departs regularly every day from 6am - 11.30pm from outside the terminal. Bus fares are around $7 per person and can be paid with cash to the driver. The commute time is approximately 30 minutes depending on traffic.

Christchurch Airport Accommodation

There are only a couple of accommodation options within immediate vicinity of the airport, meaning it is more in a person's interests to make the 10 minute drive to our Riccarton motel, or another 5 minutes into the heart of the city.

Our Christchurch Airport motel on Riccarton Road provides several accommodation options, including studio units, wheel chair access units, spa studio units, as well as 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units for our guests. Check out our full range of Christchurch Airport motel accommodation here.
