Blenheim, NZ Airport Review: What Flying Private Must Be Like

Blenheim Airport Review is part of the TPOL Down Under Trip Report.

The flight from Blenheim to Auckland is only an hour and a half long. There’s no need to show up to the airport early. I described how great Aussie airports are. This one was even better. The ticketing counter and the departure terminal are in one room. There is no security. Imagine living in a world where this was the norm?

  1. Thanks for reviews. I plan on going to NZ in October and think I might fly into Blenheim from Auckland and drive around the north part of the south island. Looks lovely.
