Auck­land Air­port has awarded two $50,000 grants to re­gional tourism groups as part of its fifth an­nual round of Tourism De­vel­op­ment Grants. The grants, awarded to Haka Tours and EatNZ, will support both re­cip­i­ents to con­tinue de­vel­op­ing and ‘clus­ter­ing’ tourism ex­pe­ri­ences that will at­tract in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors in off-peak sea­sons. Scott Tasker, Auck­land Air­port’s gen­eral man­ager aero­nau­ti­cal com­mer­cial, says ‘‘this year op­er­a­tors were asked to demon­strate a clear vi­sion for new tourism prod­ucts and out­stand­ing sea­sonal and coun­try-wide travel ex­pe­ri­ences.’’ Pre­vi­ous re­cip­i­ents in­clude NZ Wine, TIME Un­lim­ited, Ex­plore Group, Nga¯ti Wha¯tua ra¯kei, YHA and Bu­larangi Mo­tor­bikes.
