370 new jobs at Auckland Airport

New food and beverage outlets lead to 370 new jobs at Auckland Airport

A new line-up of 27 food and beverage outlets across the domestic and international terminals will lead to hundreds of new jobs at Auckland Airport over the next 12 months.

The new line-up consists of 21 new outlets, which will start opening from June 2018, and six existing outlets which are being redeveloped.

Richard Barker, Auckland Airport’s general manager retail and commercial, says “Our new line-up of food and beverage outlets will provide travellers with an outstanding selection of high-quality New Zealand and international dining options.”

“There will be 370 new management, operations and retail roles which will be responsible for ensuring there is an excellent level of customer service for the millions of passengers that travel through Auckland Airport each year,” says Mr Barker.

“It’s also a significant jobs boost for the South Auckland community. There will be more employment opportunities for local people to work close to where they live. Given our location in South Auckland, it’s important that local people can connect with local jobs which present exciting and rewarding retail careers.”

“We’re also giving customers what they have long desired which is an increased variety of the best of New Zealand tastes and flavours alongside more international cuisines, all set in a modern and vibrant dining environment. There will be something for everyone, with a choice of in-terminal restaurants, casual dining, fast food and grab-and-go outlets.”

We are also delighted to announce that popular New Zealand eateries Better Burger, Mexico, Orleans Chicken and Waffles and Al Brown’s Best Ugly Bagels will open in the international terminal.”

“We will have a wide range of New Zealand-themed bars and restaurants, including Glamp Grounds - an innovative bar and eatery with play areas for children, designed as an iconic Kiwi outdoor campground.”

“They will be joined by Tea Garden, a high-tea concept developed specially for Auckland Airport by tea company Dilmah and celebrity chef Simon Gault; Oma, an artisan bakery and café which has been developed in collaboration with Auckland-based baker Isabel Pasch; 400 Gradi, an Italian restaurant by Melbourne award-winning celebrity chef Johnny Di Francesco.”

“Lovers of international cuisine will also be spoilt for choice when our new Vietnamese, Japanese and Chinese dining locations open.”

“We want everyone to have a great food and beverage experience while they are at Auckland Airport, and today’s announcement will ensure travellers get to taste the very best of New Zealand and the world.”

“This is yet another exciting stage in the implementation of our 30-year vision to build the airport of the future,” concludes Mr Barker.

The new food and beverage outlets will be managed by five experienced and successful food and beverage operators: Emirates Leisure Retail; Barworks Hospitality Group; Delaware North Companies, in partnership with the Britomart Hospitality Group; HMSHost; and Kiwi Discovery.
