Auckland Airport supports new tourism growth framework

Media Release l 24 March 2014

Auckland Airport supports new tourism growth framework and is committed to playing its part

Auckland Airport has congratulated the New Zealand Tourism Industry Association on the development of a strategic growth framework, and is committed to playing its part to deliver growth for the country.

The New Zealand Tourism Industry Association’s Tourism 2025 framework was launched this afternoon at Auckland Airport. It includes a focus on growing sustainable air connectivity and targets 6% annual growth for the tourism sector, to increase tourism revenue to $41 billion by 2025.

Adrian Littlewood, Auckland Airport’s chief executive, says, “Auckland Airport welcomes this tourism growth framework and we will continue to work with the industry to expand New Zealand’s share of fast growing tourism markets.”

“Improving air service connectivity is of one the critical factors to grow our tourism industry. It is the catalyst for tourism growth for both domestic and international tourism. It also supports our national economy, with each daily international wide-body flight into New Zealand adding approximately $140 million to GDP - much of which goes directly into the tourism industry.”

“Auckland Airport is committed to play its part to deliver on the Tourism 2025 growth framework. We will work closely with all airlines to identify new opportunities to grow routes and establish new markets. We will also continue our work with industry partners, such as Tourism New Zealand and the local and international travel trade, to build those new routes and markets.”

“Significantly, we will invest in a 30-year development plan of Auckland Airport so that we can grow from 14 million passengers today to 40 million in 2044. Our 30 year vision for the airport of the future will deliver the right capacity and the right customer experience to help New Zealand realise its tourism potential.”

“We worked closely with the New Zealand Tourism Industry Association to develop the growth framework and Auckland Airport now looks forward to supporting its implementation.”

“We congratulate Martin Snedden, who has led the development of this framework, and thank everyone who played their part in its development,” says Mr Littlewood.
