Christchurch Airport toIn order to connect with all the small and regional businesses based in New Zealand and attract Chinese visitors to the country, Alibaba, world’s largest retail e-commerce company is collaborating with Christchurch Airport. To provide memorable experience and ease for Chinese visitors while exploring New Zealand and extending opportunities for many small level businesses in New Zealand after Chinese visitors return to their homes are the main focus of the said agreement.

Additionally, Alibaba Group apps will be beneficial for the Chinese travelers as they’ll be able to use the application while exploring New Zealand which includes shopping and financial transactions as well. If we look back, last year almost 443 million Chinese consumers bought online products and accessed services through Alibaba Group’s apps.


This move is welcomed in the midst of Chinese tourism boom and is predicted to attract more Chinese tourists to New Zealand in the forthcoming days.

The main goal was to provide best experience for Chinese tourists coming to New Zealand as confirmed by Malcolm Johns, Christchurch Airport chief executive. To quote him, ‘this agreement has the potential to super-charge regional development across New Zealand, by unlocking micro-exporting using tourism as the basis for the first meeting between the parties.’
