From the 31st of January the Kaikoura schedule will be:

I will have to get a move on if I want to fly to Kaikoura!


  1. As of 12 Jan 17, InterCity Coachlines is operating a daily bus service CHC/KKR/CHC. This service departs CHC 7am arrives KKR 9.40am and departs KKR 3.50pm arriving CHC 6.25pm.

    For those who want to fly KKR/CHC/KKR you better get organising.

    1. KBZ is the IATA code for Kaikoura Kris... Not sure how they worked that out... that is why Wings Over Whales Airvan's registration is ZK-KBZ

    2. Hi Steve. Thanks for that. InterCity Coachlines uses KKR which is odd, as KKR is for Kaukura Airport on Kaukura Atoll, French Polynesia. InterCity sticks where possible to IATA codes for it reservation system. Kiwirail Scenic uses KBZ for Kaikoura in its reservation system.
