Pullman hotel to become Auckland Airport’s first 5-star hotel
Construction of the 250-room Pullman Auckland Airport is expected to start by the end of this year, with the hotel scheduled to open by late 2019.
AccorHotels Pacific chief operating officer Simon McGrath said the hotel development will contribute significantly to the continued evolution of Auckland Airport as one of Asia Pacific’s most important aviation and transport hubs.
“Auckland Airport has done a remarkable job transforming the precinct into a modern ‘aerocity’ and we are very pleased to be partnering with them, along with our established partners Tainui Group Holdings, in developing the new Pullman,” said McGrath.
“The success of the Novotel in attracting corporate, conference and leisure travellers has highlighted the potential for a 5-star branded hotel at the airport, and with Pullman having such a strong presence in downtown Auckland, as well as in other major cities around the region, it will be a natural fit for the expansion of Auckland Airport’s tourism infrastructure.”
