Hilton Worldwide is to open a property at Bristol airport under its economy Hampton by Hilton brand.
The group reached an agreement with modular building provider CIMC to finance, develop and own the hotel.
The 201-room hotel is expected to open in spring 2016 and will be the first hotel at the airport. It will feature meetings spaces, 24-hour fitness centre and parking for 120 cars.
The property will be built using a ‘modular technique’ which reduces the time for construction by assembling portions of the hotel in China before shipping them across to the UK.
Hilton Worldwide Europe and Africa development senior vice president Patrick Fitzgibbon said: “CIMC’s capacity to deliver modular sections of the building to the final hotel site offers an incredible opportunity to overcome many of the challenges faced during construction.
“Alongside potential time and cost efficiencies, CIMC’s ability to provide senior debt to developers using its modular building technique underpins its robust growth model, and we are seeing more and more opportunity for this structure in mature markets such as the UK, and developing economies, most notably in Africa.”
Bristol airport last month recorded the highest on-time performance rating out of all major small, medium and large airports globally, according to aviation data specialists, OAG.
