Auckland International Airport

After upgrading the 3A arrivals area at Auckland Airport, S&T’s next challenge was to improve the departures experience of travellers leaving New Zealand’s shores.

The project included a revamping of the entire departures area including both before and after security checks. The result creates a spacious and contemporary area for travellers to relax and unwind before their flights.

Travellers now enjoy a smoother departure process with enhanced retail and dining options. Increased natural light from skylights, the use of New Zealand timbers and a selection of colours are designed to remind travellers of their experience in a distinctly Kiwi way.

“Delighted by the new airport departure area... I would have been happy to stay much longer and I don’t usually say that about airports.”
