With all the changes with lounges I double checked the Christchurch accessibility for the NZ lounge for a Velocity Platinum travelling internationally and only the domestic one is showing. Given they do have an international lounge after immigration I'm wondering if it's just been missed or for some reason this is the only international AirNZ lounge on NZ soil not included in the alliance.

Has anyone been through Christchurch lately who can confirm access one way or another?

From the lounge accessf from this article:

"There’s also no change to benefits or lounge access for Velocity Gold and Platinum cardholders when travelling with Air New Zealand from any city – so if you’re jetting from Auckland to the USA with Air New Zealand in economy or premium economy, for example, you’re still clear to visit the Air NZ lounge.

Paid-up Virgin Australia lounge members aren’t affected at all by these revisions and can continue visiting Air New Zealand lounges in Australia and New Zealand prior to Virgin Australia trans-Tasman flights".

Velocity members can use Air NZ Christchurch airport domestic and regional lounges if flying within NZ and Air NZ international lounge which is located airside from Trans Tasman flights.
