They’ve done it again! Pullman Brisbane Airport has again been recognised as the Best Airport Hotel in Australia/Pacific at the Skytrax World Airport Awards held in Paris, France.

Pullman Brisbane Airport was also able to secure the 6th top spot as one of the World’s Best Airport Hotels for 2022. 


Alex Penklis, Chief Operating Officer of Brisbane Airport Hotels Group (BAHG), acknowledged that these honours would not be possible if not for an incredibly talented hospitality team that has thrived under the pandemic.

“The entire team at Pullman Brisbane Airport is extremely proud of these Skytrax accolades, especially maintaining our position as the number one airport hotel in the Australia/Pacific region for the second time in four years – with two of those awards years impacted by a global pandemic,” Mr Penklis said.  

“I am incredibly proud of what our dedicated team has been able to achieve for both our guests and owners given the challenging couple of years we have had, and we’ve never stopped working hard to maintain and deliver our world-class Pullman service.”

Pullman Brisbane Airport was part of the $150-million project to transform 1,800sqm Brisbane Airport Conference Centre with a 243-room airport hotel.

Anthony and Scott Flynn, of Flynn Property Group and Scott Flynn Properties, ushered in the development.  The Flynn brothers have also delivered a quality 4.5-star hotel at Brisbane Airport’s Skygate precinct, the Novotel Brisbane Airport. The three hotels with a combined total of 532 guest rooms see Flynn’s as the largest franchisee partner for Accor in the region.  

Pullman Brisbane Airport welcomed its first guests in October 2017. Aside from the luxury accommodation, the hotel offers guests a premium transit experience while awaiting their next flight. Guests can enjoy a bite to eat in Apron Restaurant and Bar, relax by the pool or unwind in the Executive Club Lounge.

The independent survey for the World’s Best Airport Hotels is evaluated on key performance indicators including overall experience at the hotel, access to and from the airport, service at reception, cleanliness, restaurant quality, value for money and quality of customer service.
