Airspresso is an established airside cafe experience like no other, with operations in both main islands of New Zealand; one in New Plymouth, the other Queenstown.

The brainchild of two hospitality entrepreneurs with vastly different backgrounds, the brand has proved to be a winning formula for travellers and visitors because of its excellence in home-bake style food, fresh roasted speciality coffee and a décor of heritage flying stories and artefacts.

Craig Macfarlane has established a cluster of cafes and restaurants in Taranaki, Wellington, Hamilton and Queenstown, as well as Ozone Coffee Roasters which has a growing customer base the length of the country.

Ozone Roasteries are now burgeoning businesses in New Plymouth, and Shoreditch, London. Macfarlane also built King and Queen Hotel Suites with father in law Russell Boddington in New Plymouth, a top end accommodation experience.

Jim Hickey, well known television weatherman, pilot and coffee aficionado is the other half of the partnership. The son of a WW2 Spitfire pilot, Hickey flies his own aerobatic Yak 52 Warbird, and for years yearned to see a contemporary quality airport café adorned with local aviation heritage in his home town.

Contact and discussions with Macfarlane ensued. The synergies and strategic planning saw the embryonic plan hatch into the award winning Airspresso experience at New Plymouth airport. Customers indulge in delicious café fare and coffee excellence, in the midst of authentic vintage aviation memorabilia and biographies of local pioneer and wartime pilots.
