Officially Momona Airport (DUD), Dunedin’s airport connects the South Island city with the country’s major cities – Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington.
Dunedin sits about a 3.5-hour drive east of Queenstown and 5 hours south of Christchurch, so if you’re looking for flights from other New Zealand cities than what’s above, or from overseas, it could be worth comparing flights to Queenstown and flights to Christchurch too.
