Mercurius Group Managing Director Ivo Favotto said: “The proliferation of airport hotels in Australia and New Zealand over the past few years has been nothing short of phenomenal. The airport customer base has always been strong, but other categories such as hotels adjacent to the terminal and within walking distance of the airport have seen significant growth.

“AHS helps explain this phenomenon through an in-depth analysis of airport hotels per million passengers and by comparing the performance of airport hotels with that of downtown and other hotels on a range of indicators. key performance.”

AHS adds to Mercurius’ growing portfolio of industrial studies and research collaborations. These include the Airport Commercial Revenue Study (published by the Moodie Davitt Report); The Airport Car Parking Study and the Airport Catering Study (AU+NZ).

Further studies on other critical airport business revenue streams are expected to be released in the coming months.
