New café opens at Auckland Airport

A new oasis called the Wayfarer, has appeared amid the hustle and bustle of  Auckland Airport.

The Spotless operated café has been introduced following a six month review of the airport by the company and serves Eightthirty coffee, craft beers, local wine and fresh hand-crafted food in an informal atmosphere.

Goods are served picnic style and customers have the option to eat in or takeaway if they are short on time.   Wayfarer has food ordering apps, allowing travellers to plan ahead and has established a loyalty programme for regulars.

Sustainability also features strongly with Wayfarer using biodegradable packaging for all of its goods.

According to Spotless Senior Retail Operations Manager, Ben Blair, there are different types of travellers with distinct needs and this café has been designed to cater for all needs. “Whether is is a large group wanting to settle in before departure or a corporate traveller grabbing a quick coffee on their way to a meeting, we have them all covered.”
