Airport! - International Gateway to Christchurch

It's been a long 10-hour flight! You've completed your arrival card and your Boeing 777 aircraft has taxied up to the air bridge.

Welcome to Christchurch International Airport! During this field trip you will journey as an international traveler through the airport terminal. You will present yourself and your passport to Immigration staff at border control, claim your luggage, get sniffed by an MPI detector dog and see how Customs work to keep our country safe.

You will discover the airport is one large community supporting you as a traveler, arranging freight movements and contributing to the economy of the city, region, and country. You also have special and rare permission to ride in a state-of-the-art fire truck, see how well prepared the airport is for emergencies, and explore how the environment is cared for.
