Bicycle Facilities

Christchurch Airport offers services that make travelling with a bicycle that much easier.

Arrivals

When arriving into Christchurch Airport from a flight you will need to collect your bicycle from the oversize baggage collection point at your conveyor belt.

If you would like to assemble your bike you can use the assembly racks provided outside the terminal.  Please discard any cardboard or plastic wrapping in the bins which are located close by.

Departures

If you wish to take your bicycle on a flight, it must be in suitable packaging. Luggage Solutions offer a last minute bicycle packing service using Euro-style plastic bicycle bags and heat sealed straps. You must confirm with your airline that this packing is acceptable.

To prepare your bicycle to be packed into a plastic bicycle bag you need to use your tool kit to secure the handlebar so it is parallel to the frame, lower the seat and fold up or remove the pedals in the assembly areas outside the terminal. No further dismantling is required. Luggage Solutions will strap the handlebar to the frame and secure the wheels to each other before packing your bicycle into your plastic bicycle bag and closing it with heat sealed straps. Contact Luggage Solutions for further information.

Storage

If you wish to leave your bicycle at the airport there are three places to lock and leave your bicycle. They are:

1) Under the Express Park (covered car park building) (unsecured)

2) At the entrance to the International Arrivals Hall (unsecured) (next to Door 9)

3) Luggage Solutions offer a secure storage service for packed bicycles
