Manchester Evening News reports that plans are underway to construct at least four new hotels at Manchester airport by 2021. The airport is currently undergoing a £1 billion transformation programme in which to construct a new passenger pier and multi-story car park due to open in April 2019 and a Terminal 2 extension for 2020.
Manchester Evening News reports that the £180 million hotel district, which will be a part of Airport City, will include two Hilton hotels, a Holiday Inn and Ibis Budget – creating 1,200 new beds and 500 jobs.
The 375-bed Hilton Garden Inn will be split across two wings and have a sky bar, garden lounge and fitness centre.
While the other is a 254-bed Hampton by Hilton hotel with direct links to the airport terminal and train station via a covered walkway.
Adam White, director of commercial and business Development, Manchester Airports Group (MAG) property and Airport City Joint Venture Partner said:
"Demand for additional hotel beds is underpinned by the increase in passengers, airlines and new routes at Manchester Airport, so we are very pleased to welcome two Hilton hotel brands to Airport City, marking another major step-on in progress for this exciting new commercial business hub."
Current hotel choices around the airport’s terminals and rail station include the Radisson Blu Hotel Manchester Airport, the Hilton Manchester Airport, the Clayton Hotel Manchester Airport, and the Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport.
On the west side of the airport there is another cluster of hotels including the Holiday Inn Express Manchester Airport, the Manchester Airport Marriott Hotel, and Premier Inn Manchester Airport (M56/J6) Runger Lane North hotel.
