Mini Guide for Queenstown Airport

Queenstown Airport is a favourite for skiers heading to New Zealand’s Ski Resorts in the Southern Alps. There in winter the snow is perfect for skiing and several resorts have sprung up in Otago Province to cater for the needs of winter sports enthusiasts.

Do not forget to ask for a ski rack on your Hire Car if getting to your resort this way. The area is stunningly beautiful in the early summer too as the snow still caps the peaks whilst the air is full of the scent of flowers and fresh grass.

Car hire is a great option for thoroughly enjoyable exploration, with good onward road routes.  If you have hired with Rhino, collect your car from the desks in the airport terminal.
