Mezzanine floor conference facilities planned

Posted by Marianne

The passenger terminal at Marlborough Airport in New Zealand will double in size if plans to expand the building, which include a  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level, are agreed.

The drawings envisage a meeting room to seat between 15 and 20 people which will be constructed on the new mezzanine level. In addition to the new conference facility, other proposals include an expanded retail area on the ground floor and the construction of a new Club Class lounge.

Having the facility to hold meetings at the airport will be extremely popular with the travelling public, who want to minimise time travelling to a hotel or conference venue at a distance from the airport, particularly if they are en route to a further destination.

Although no costing or funding figures have yet been agreed, suggestions include financing the project from licences and leases.

Marlborough District Council, who own the airport terminal, anticipate the increase in both retail outlets and conference and lounge facilities will bring more business to the airport, acknowledging that this may lead to an expansion of the existing runways to accommodate larger planes.

Although this proposal has not yet been fully debated, Air New Zealand has recently purchased several ATR72-600, with a passenger capacity of 68, for use on local routes. It is envisaged that the Beech 1900D, with a capacity of 19 passengers which presently flies between the major cities of Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch and Blenheim will be replaced by Q300s with a capacity of 50.
