Construction begins at new US$38m hotel at Adelaide Airport

Adelaide Airport’s new A$50m (US$38m), 165-room Atura Hotel has begun construction with Event Hospitality & Entertainment (EVENT) developing and operating the seven-storey building.

The hotel is expected to open in December 2018 and will feature a restaurant and bar, a business center, and flexible function and meeting spaces, plus an entrance for guest drop-off and collection. It is estimated 350 construction and related jobs will be created during the construction works.

Jane Hastings, CEO of EVENT, said, “We are thrilled to deliver Atura Hotels to South Australia. Atura will provide the eight million passengers flying into Adelaide each year the opportunity to experience the Atura philosophy of value driven urban design, quality food and beverage, and great local hospitality.”

Urban, industrial and design-inspired, the hotel’s free-flowing communal spaces will be a key design feature, and the restaurant, bar, lobby and general public spaces will integrate with the broader airport terminal, accessible by all travelers. A walkway will directly link the hotel with the airport’s Level 2 domestic and international check-in area.

Adelaide Airport managing director Mark Young commented, “The Atura Hotel will be a focal point of our long-term vision to create an easy, seamless connection between our aeronautical activities and our planned Airport Business District.

“There are more than 8,700 people directly employed on the airport and many business people fly to Adelaide to conduct business solely at the airport. We expect demand to grow as passenger numbers continue to increase, and we develop our Airport Business District infrastructure and expand our terminal facilities.

“We believe the Atura Hotel offers a real point of difference to the airport precinct. It’s great to see construction underway and we look forward to welcoming the first customers late next year.”
