A resort town in the scenic mountains of New Zealand's South Island, Queenstown is a prime destination for snow sports and adventure tourism, but you don't need to be a thrill-seeker to enjoy its attractions. Queenstown vacation packages are also a good choice for families who like to spend time outdoors, and anyone who appreciates fine food and wine in a spectacular lakefront setting. Find cheap flights to Queenstown Airport (ZQN) and you're on your way to one of the most appealing places in all of New Zealand.
Getting from ZQN to hotels in Queenstown, as well as many of the region's tourist attractions, is simple. You have a number of options, which can be arranged in advance as soon as you've booked your flights to Queenstown or upon arrival at the airport. A convenient public bus service, Connectabus, runs every 15 minutes between ZQN and local hotels, attractions, and shopping centers. Buy tickets from the @TourismQueenstown kiosk in the terminal or on board the bus. Three taxi companies and four shuttle companies serve the airport. If you're traveling with a large family or group, call in advance to arrange a larger vehicle. For a more luxurious ride, look into the numerous limousine companies serving ZQN passengers. If you prefer to drive yourself, rent a car from one of the eight companies with desks inside the terminal building or within a few minutes' walk away. More than a dozen other car, van, and camper rental companies based outside the airport offer pick-up and drop-off services. Still not sure about the best transportation option for you? Staff at the Airport Information Desk are there to offer advice to passengers as soon as their Queenstown flights arrive.
