On occasion, CIAL provides permission to parties interested in
filming on the airport. The nature of the filming request
dictates the response of the airport company; however the following
information serves as a guide.
Christchurch International Airport Filming Policy
Permission must be granted by the airport company before any
filming occurs on airport land. If permission is granted,
CIAL will assist in negotiations with the airport Government
Agencies, airlines and any other affected parties.A minimum notice
period of one week is required for standard filming requests.
Exempt from this are requests for media filming, where permission
for landside ('before security') filming will be granted
immediately provided the request meets CIAL guidelines, and
requests for filming of more than 3 hours, for which a minimum of 2
weeks notice is required. Requests requiring CIAL staff
resources also require 2 weeks notice.
Indicative Location Charges
The type of filming and the scale of the production will
determine the location charges to be applied, and the following
table is indicative only. There is a minimum unit of a half
day (4 hours). Airport Government Agencies such as Aviation
Security and New Zealand Customs may also impose charges depending
on their requirements.
|Cost per half day (4 hours)*
|Landside (before security)
||Airside (after security)
|Film or Television Series
*Costs may be negotiable under certain circumstances, and
exclude Goods and Services Tax of 15%.
The charges above cover location fees and use of the airport,
and are subject to change at anytime. If staffing or
equipment resources are required to supervise a production or to
provide airside access, additional personnel costs will apply and
will be advised on application.
