Adelaide Airport unveils hotel plan

A hotel with direct links to domestic and international check-in areas will be built at Adelaide Airport in South Australia.

Event Hospitality & Entertainment Ltd has reached agreement with Adelaide Airport Ltd to develop and operate a seven-storey, 165-room hotel within the Adelaide Airport precinct.

Developed under the Atura brand, the hotel will feature a restaurant and bar, a business centre, flexible function and meeting spaces plus a port-cochere for patron drop off and collection.

A walkway will directly link the hotel with the airport’s Level 2 domestic and international check-in area.

Event Hospitality and Entertainment Limited Group Managing Director David Seargeant said the “unique design” would seamlessly connect the terminal and hotel with the plaza space.

AFTA Chief Executive appears at Senate Economics Legislation Committee Parliament House Canberra

AFTA Chief Executive appeared with the CEO of TTF, Margy Osmond and other industry representatives to put the point forward (based on comprehensive KPMG financial modelling) to the Committee that the Working Holiday Makers (WHM) Reform Package does not need to include the increase to the Passenger Movement Charge (PMC). It is clear that the WHM package without the PMC increase does “wash its face” as the Government said the package needed to do.

“This KPMG modelling confirms that the backpacker tax package does not need the PMC to supplement the revenue the government desires by this package,” said Jayson Westbury Chief Executive.
