Aberdeen International Airport is set to be home to a new hotel complex as part of a £30 million development.
The Construction Enquirer reports that work on the new facility will begin during the first quarter of 2014. The news provider believes that Dominvs Hospitality has been in talks with contractors and is expected to sign an agreement for the construction phase which is expected to take two years to complete.
Officials explained that the work will involve building adjoining three and four star hotels with a total of 251 beds. It is designed to attract more people to not only use Aberdeen for flights but give them the option of staying over close to the airport if they have to catch an early morning flight.
Preet Ahluwalia, Director of Dominvs Hospitality, told the news provider: “The Aberdeen market has been in our sights since our company’s inception. The location, size and potential of this site could not be more ideal, we as a company cannot wait to begin work on this project."
Aberdeen International Airport experienced an increase of passenger footfall during 2012 with numbers rising eight per cent to over 3.3 million compared to the previous. It is an ideal location for people living in northern Scotland, along with Inverness airport, offering a range of flights to a multitude of destinations.
While domestic flights to the likes of London Heathrow, London Gatwick and Manchester remain popular with passengers there has also been a demand for services to Frankfurt, Paris Charles De Gaulle and Stavanger, Norway. Aberdeen also facilitates flights to Shetland with over 75,000 passengers travelling between mainland Scotland and Sumburgh Airport in 2012 alone.
Dominvs Hospitality is looking to improve the offering Aberdeen International is currently providing to the multitude of passengers that move through every year.
