Police have released the name of the woman killed in last week's jet boat crash in Queenstown.

She is Yan Wang, a 42-year-old Chinese national.

Ms Wang died when the Kawarau Jet boat in which she was a passenger flipped where the Kawarau and Shotover rivers meet.

The woman's husband and a group of six, including family and business associates, are en route to Queenstown from China.

The group will meet police on Wednesday and see where Ms Wang died.
