How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Queenstown
These practical tips and pointers about airport security checks will save you lots of time on your way to Queenstown:

  • Security staff will expect to see your boarding pass and passport at the checkpoint. Have them in a convenient place, ready for inspection.
  • You’ll need to put your music on pause for a little while. Headphones and earphones need to be removed and placed in a bin to be X-rayed. The same goes for items such as coins and keys.
  • All laptops must be removed from their cases and placed in a tray before being X-rayed.
  • Toothpaste, deodorant and other toiletry items in gel, liquid or cream form need to be stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear resealable bag.
  • Steel-cap footwear and other bulky shoes are likely to be X-rayed by security personnel. Think about wearing simple sneakers instead.
  • The list of non-permissible items is forever updating. Browse your airline’s website to find out what is not allowed on board their flights.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.

Flights To Queenstown

A resort town in the scenic mountains of New Zealand's South Island, Queenstown is a prime destination for snow sports and adventure tourism, but you don't need to be a thrill-seeker to enjoy its attractions. Queenstown vacation packages are also a good choice for families who like to spend time outdoors, and anyone who appreciates fine food and wine in a spectacular lakefront setting. Find cheap flights to Queenstown Airport (ZQN) and you're on your way to one of the most appealing places in all of New Zealand.
