Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Queenstown News

A bag drop-off and early check-in initiative being trialled by Air New Zealand in Queenstown could be rolled out to other locations if it proves successful, the airline says.

The national carrier says it will introduce a pop-up check-in and bag drop service in downtown Queenstown from November 20.

Passengers on the airline's domestic and international services will be able to use the service on the day of travel as part of a three month trial.

Queenstown high school campers evacuated from remote school camp

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Queenstown News

Four-wheel-drives and helicopters were used to bring 224 Queenstown students and staff home from their flooded, remote camp.

About 40 of the year 10 Wakatipu High School students were flown back to school from the camp on Thursday morning.

The rest had to walk about 6 kilometres through flood-damaged parts of the remote Branches Rd before being collected by four-wheel-drive vehicles.

Principal Steve Hall says the students were rescued thanks to a strong community effort.
