Air New Zealand trials downtown Queenstown check in and bag drop

    Air New Zealand announced (12-Nov-2019) plans to introduce a pop up check in and bag drop service for domestic and international passengers in downtown Queenstown as part of a three month trial, effective 20-Nov-2019. Under the three month trial, Air New Zealand staff at the site will check the travellers in, allowing them to drop off their bags and have them securely transported by the airline’s trial partner Off Airport Check In Solutions, to the airport and straight into the airport’s baggage system. The service is available to passengers with excess, oversized and special baggage and will be free of charge until 09-Dec-2019, with NZD15 (USD9.5) per booking to be charged thereafter.
