Looking for extra space and comfort to relax, work or dine before your flight departs? 

Join us in the Manaia Lounge and start your journey in style – with warm hospitality, a relaxed atmosphere and stunning views of the Remarkables mountain range.

The Manaia Lounge (Māori for Protector of Land, Sea and Sky) caters for up to 150 guests and is the only passenger lounge located in the Domestic Departures Terminal.  This means that you get the formalities of completing aviation security screening and Customs out of the way first and can just sit back and relax in the lounge until it’s time to board your flight. From there, it’s only a quick stroll downstairs to the boarding gates.

Manaia Lounge facilities include a business centre with free Wi-Fi and desktop computers as well as TV and reading areas, dining areas and dedicated bathrooms.  There is also a gourmet food selection featuring hot and cold food freshly prepared by on-site chefs.

The lounge’s contemporary style and luxurious furnishings were chosen to reflect the local environment with a colour scheme that picks up the hues of Central Otago and personal touches like a black and white photo wall of holiday snaps.

Lounge Eligibility

The lounge can be accessed with a Priority Pass, Lounge Key, Plaza Lounge or Dragon Pass.

A ‘pay in’ option is also offered to all domestic passengers travelling on any airline.  Access charges are $20 per adult for up to three hours.

Complimentary Invitation Vouchers or International Business Lounge Invitations are unfortunately not permitted as the Manaia Lounge is an associated lounge.
