How to find the Christchurch Airport branch

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.

Ace's Courtesy pick up van is available during office hours (8am - 5pm) by calling the freephone number whereby a staff member will advise clients of the meeting point outside of both international and domestic terminals.

Hours and transfers

8am - 6pm, 7 days per week. Closed Christmas Day.

Transfers can be arranged from the airport and are only available between the hours of 8.15am and 5.30pm.

If you are arriving outside our office hours, prior arrangements can be made by contacting our branch directly. Please note all after hours collections will incur a $30 fee and are at the discretion of the manager.

After hours drop offs are available and our staff can pre-arrange a shuttle or taxi at the clients cost to transfer them back to the airport or accommodation.
