(13 Aug 2021) Air New Zealand has opened a new regional lounge at Napier Airport.
The lounge, located on level 1 of the terminal, can cater for around 130 guests – almost double the seating capacity than the previous space.
Passengers will be able to choose from several distinct zones to relax in, including a café area, a self-service buffet and drinks station, as well as dedicated business and quiet areas.
Leanne Geraghty, Air New Zealand’s Chief Customer and Sales Officer said, “We know our customers travel for a myriad of reasons, those travelling for business may want a quiet space to get some work done before flying, others to sit, relax and enjoy a pre-flight drink. This insight was at the heart of the new lounge design.
“With many Kiwis continuing to explore all New Zealand has to offer, and Hawkes Bay proving a popular corner of the country, it’s the perfect time to open the doors and welcome customers to our new lounge space.”
The new Napier lounge follows the opening of other new regional lounges, including Nelson and New Plymouth, which are all part of an investment Air New Zealand is making in regional lounges across the country.
The lounge is open to all Airpoints Elite, Gold, Elite Partner and Koru members departing on an Air New Zealand flight (no more than four hours prior to flight departure).
