Christchurch International Airport Limited report, 24 September 202

Below is Christchurch Airport’s preliminary airport assessment, the first step in no doubt many before the airport might be built. It indicates the site is suitable for a 2.2km runway, for domestic and short-haul international flights. Potentially, a 3km runway could accommodate wide-body jets flying beyond Australia. Dedicated freight aircraft could connect with Australian freight hubs and perhaps further afield.
