Rydges Wellington Airport hotel opens

The four-star Rydges Wellington Airport hotel has opened. It is New Zealand’s first hotel to be fully connected and integrated with an airport terminal.

“Tourists, business people and travellers from the wider Wellington region who are flying out early or arriving late will find the hotel an ideal option – they’ll enjoy a great night’s rest and an easy walk to the terminal,” said Steve Sanderson, CEO, Wellington Airport.

“This hotel reflects our commitment to continuing to enhance the airport experience for the growing number of passengers travelling through Wellington.”

Featuring 134 rooms, a bar and restaurant, the hotel will also be accompanied by a refurbished conference centre with eight meeting rooms, opening later this year.

“Having direct access from inside the main terminal level is unique and it’s exciting that Rydges Wellington Airport will be the very first fully integrated airport hotel in New Zealand,” said Chad Johnston, general manager, Rydges Wellington Airport.

“The hotel has the added benefit of being a plane spotter’s delight – with rooms having extensive views out to Lyall Bay and directly out over the runway.”
