To get to the Christchurch Airport branch from North travelling along State Highway 1, continue to follow Main North Road (which becomes Johns Road, then Russley Road) to the airport. Before you reach the airport, turn left into Wairakei Road, and then right into Abros Place.
From the South on State Highway 1 takes you up to Carmen Road. Turn left and follow Carmen Road (which becomes Russley Road) past the airport until Wairakei Road. Turn right into Wairakei Road around the round-about, and follow until you get to Abros Place on the right.
From the city centre, make your way up to Bealey Avenue and follow towards the airport onto Carlton Mill Road. Carlton Mill Road quickly becomes Rossall Road, then Strowan Road and finally Wairakei Road which you follow until you come across Abros Place on the left.
The Christchurch Airport depot is a short distance from the airport, and handy to all major highways leading out of Christchurch, but only a short drive to the city centre. The Airport branch is close to many popular hotels and motels, the International Antarctic Centre and the ever popular Clearwater Resort which hosts many international events.
