"Luggage Theft at Christchurch Domestic Airport" Top 5 Page for this destination Christchurch Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Kakapo2

Christchurch Warnings and Dangers: 32 reviews and 17 photos


Althouth there have not been any newspaper reports about this problem lately there still is a risk that luggage gets stolen at Christchurch Domestic Airport. The baggage claim in the domestic arrival area is open to everybody, so also burglars can grab a bag or suitcase which looks promising. So do not buy chocolates or flowers directly after arrival but get to the baggage claim as fast as possible, so you are there when the belt starts to run.

The international arrival area is behind closed doors, so the luggage is safe there.
