Hi! My fiancee and I are visiting NZ as part of our honeymoon next year. As part of our trip, we are arriving in Christchurch on an Air NZ flight and then connecting (with a 1h 45m layover) to a QF flight to Queenstown. I have a few questions regarding what we need to do.
(1) After clearing NZ customs in CHC, is there an international transfer desk we can visit to check our bags on the QF flight? Or, do we need to go out to the general QF check-in area?
(2) Is the layover time we have alloted enough to make this international -> domestic connection? I saw somewhere (either QF or JQ website) that 1h45m is the recommended connection time, so I feel like we should be OK. But I just wanted to see if any of you had any experiences with this.
