New shopping area opens for Christmas

30 October 2010

It’s not long still Santa comes, and it won’t be long until the airside departures area in the international terminal opens with a whole new look.

The final stages of the redevelopment are coming together with the area opening in phases commencing mid November through to the official launch of the space in mid December.

The development will unfold some new international brands as well as the local and popular brands that travellers already enjoy at tax and duty free prices.

There will be an extended food offer and the central feature of the area is a unique tree-like structure which will be an iconic meeting point for travellers where they can unwind, relax and reflect after clearing customs.

Auckland Airport’s Louise Gonczy says the area “will be home to world class brands in a world class environment”.
