Airport hospitality earns gong
Launceston Airport’s Boags Upper Deck, Bar and Restaurant has been judged the Food and Beverage Offer Best Reflecting Sense of Place in the Asia Pacific Region at the Airport FAB 2017 Awards in Toronto, Canada. The airport’s $3.5m terminal transformation project, completed in June 2016, included a 600sq m expansion of the terminal with enhanced dining and shopping facilities that incorporate a strong Tasmanian flavour. The world’s first Boags restaurant and bar was part of this project. Project architects, The Buchan Group, was awarded the Commercial Architecture Award at the 2017 Tasmanian Architecture Awards held by the Australian Institute of Architects in Hobart. Launceston Airport is investing a further $2 million to provide travellers with enhanced opportunities to rest, relax and enjoy the upgraded facilities.
