Scandic adds to Gothenburg’s growth

Landvetter property to be chain’s ninth Nordic airport hotel
Scandic Hotels reports this morning that it has signed a deal with airport operator Swedavia on the operation of a new hotel at Gothenburg’s Landvetter Airport.
It will be Scandic’s ninth airport hotel in the Nordic region and is expected to be completed in 2020, with construction starting next year.
It is the second big project in Gothenburg that the company has announced this spring. On February 3, Scandic revealed plans to build a hotel to open in 2020 in central Gothenburg’s new RiverCity urban development project.
When the Landvetter property is finished, it will have seven floors with around 220 rooms, a restaurant, bar and fitness area, and about ten conference rooms.
Scandic is sure that “with its strategic location, it will be easily accessible for private and business travellers 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 bigger retail outlets are planned there. Scandic wants the new hotel to play “a central role as the area takes shape”, with the hotel’s public spaces integrated with the future arrivals hall. A planned new train line to the airport is also expected to contribute to growth.
