Mr. David J Travers has been appointed as General Manager of the ParkRoyal Melbourne Airport.

His career spans three decades and six countries, where he has worked for some of the worlds most prominent hotel groups across a variety of management positions.

In his new role, David will oversee operations at the newly launched ParkRoyal Melbourne Airport.

The 276 room hotel (rebranded from Hilton Melbourne Airport) is located at the doorstep of the domestic and international airport and links directly to the terminal by sky-bridge.

With 16 function rooms conveniently located on one level, as well as restaurant and bar options, the hotel is a multipurpose transit hub for business travellers.

ParkRoyal Melbourne Airport marks the return of the ParkRoyal brand to its birth city of Melbourne where it was founded in 1962.

David is no stranger to the ParkRoyal brand, having held his very first managerial position at the ParkRoyal Melbourne between 1992 and 1994.

Davids most recent appointment was General Manager of Projects for Langham Hotels International Group. His role included the management of the pre-opening and operation of the five-star Langham Place Samui in Koh Samui, Thailand and the project management of the first airport transit hotel in India at the new IGI International Airport in New Delhi.

Prior to joining Langham, David held General Manager roles at the Holiday Inn Suva in Fiji, Holiday Inn City Centre Christchurch and the Centra Camperdown in Sydney.

We are very pleased to have David on board and at the helm of ParkRoyal Melbourne Airport, said Pan Pacific Hotels Group CEO, A. Patrick Imbardelli. We are confident Davids vision and extensive leadership experience will translate seamlessly into his new role, driving and guiding the hotel through its exciting introduction to Melbourne. David will be an ambassador of our revitalised ParkRoyal brand and he will play an active role in developing the important connection between the hotel and local community.
