I still don't understand..

Christchurch is less than 200nm away, with 2 ILSs and 3200 meter runway. Why not just use that as a takeoff alternate?

What's the reasoning behind this company rule with 30 min for an immediate return? If there is a problem after takeoff, then simply fly to the takeoff alternate.
