Accor to manage Hotel at Guangzhou's new International Airport

Travel News Asia 29 March 2005

The Guangdong Airport Management Corporation today appointed Accor to manage the only hotel at the new international airport in Guangzhou, the gateway city to the booming commercial southern China region.

The Novotel Baiyun Airport Guangzhou is scheduled to open in October 2005.

Guangzhou New Baiyun International Airport is expected to rival Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok, with a capacity to handle up to 60 million passengers a year by 2010.

The 450-room hotel is only a short five-minute walk from the main terminal and easily accessible from both the arrival or departure halls. The airport is located in Guangzhou's Huadu district, 28 kilometres north of downtown.

Once completed Novotel Baiyun Airport Guangzhou will offer four restaurants and a lobby lounge, a 450sqm multi-function meeting space, health centre, swimming pool and business centre.

Accor Managing Director Asia Pacific Michael Issenberg said, "This is an outstanding opportunity for Accor as Guangzhou is a major hub in southern China, both for leisure and corporate travellers. We now have a significant presence in all of China's major gateway cities and this hotel will be part of our rapid expansion throughout the country.

"It is very significant that Accor's co-founder, Paul Dubrule, is in China for this signing as he has been a great advocate for China and has been instrumental in pioneering Accor's development in the country."

Novotel Baiyun Airport Guangzhou is Accor's second major airport hotel signing in Asia this year, having already won the management agreement for the exclusive hotel at Bangkok's new Suvarnabhumi Airport last month.

The Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport is scheduled to open in September 2005.
