The people of Christchurch are getting their chance to see Air New Zealand's 75th anniversary exhibition.

The exhibition has been visited by more than 675,000 people in Wellington at Te Papa Museum and at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

It opens at Canterbury Museum in Christchurch on Saturday.

The free exhibition includes a virtual reality future cabin, a display of uniforms from throughout the decades and historical collections.

There are Christchurch connections as well. There is information about the former Christchurch Mayor Henry Wigram's flying school and about tourism pioneer Rodolph Wigley who founded the Mt Cook Group which later included Mount Cook Airlines.

"Christchurch is a key gateway to the South Island for both domestic and international travellers and we're delighted to give more people the opportunity to experience how our national airline has evolved over the years," says Air New Zealand chief executive Christopher Luxon.
