Scandic Hotels has signed an agreement with Swedavia regarding the operation of a new hotel at Landvetter Airport in Gothenburg. The hotel will be Scandic’s ninth airport hotel in the Nordic region and is expected to be completed in 2020.
The hotel at Landvetter Airport is the second large project in Gothenburg that Scandic has announced during the spring of 2017. When it is finished, the hotel will have seven floors with approximately 220 rooms, a restaurant, bar and fitness area, and about ten conference rooms. With its strategic location, it will be easily accessible for private and business travelers alike as well as the 3,500 people who work in the vicinity of the airport.
Landvetter Airport is expanding and in the coming years, improved logistics, new office buildings and expanded retail outlets are planned at the airport. The new Scandic hotel will play a central role as the area takes shape and the hotel’s public spaces will be integrated with the future arrivals hall. Air traffic to and from Gothenburg is steadily increasing and a planned new train line to the airport is expected to contribute to growth in the long term.
Scandic already has five hotels in central Gothenburg and two others in the region. On February 3 this year, the company announced plans to build another hotel that will open in 2020 in the new RiverCity urban development project in central Gothenburg.
Construction will start during 2018 and the new hotel is expected to be completed in 2020.
