Emirates Leisure Retail, a subsidiary of the Emirates Group which develops and operates hospitality outlets in Dubai, Singapore and Australia, is pushing further into the New Zealand market with the opening of a restaurant at Auckland Airport. New Zealand is the fourth market Emirates Leisure Retail has entered into the past five years. The business has been operating for 10 years and runs more than 300 hospitality venues, of which around 100 are located in airports. The independent company which has very little to do with its parent airline first launched in New Zealand with a pop-up joint in Auckland Airport in 2017, and at the end of last year opened Aroha Cafe, a permanent cafe concept it designed.
