Tourism Auckland’s Airport i-SITE Manager, Glenys Black, is a busy woman with a passion for selling our region.
Glenys and her 13-strong team spend their days and nights suggesting and booking places for international and domestic travellers to visit during their stay in Auckland and New Zealand.
“I am still blown away with how many visitors get to the arrival terminal with no accommodation or plans. It’s a great opportunity for our team to showcase what Auckland and New Zealand has on offer – it’s exciting,” says Glenys.
The mother of three says her favourite part of the job is meeting a range of people from so many different cultures and selling such a great product. “I get to sell New Zealand as a job which gives me a huge sense of pride.”
After joining the team 18 months ago Glenys says that every day is different, but that her team is always working to remind visitors that Auckland is more than just a city, but a whole region full of things to see and do.
For travel tips drop into the i-SITE at the domestic or international terminals or call Glenys’ team on 09 275 6467.
