INTERSTATE Hotels & Resorts has announced a duo of new property signings at Manchester Airport.

The third-party hotel management company has been appointed to operate two new properties at the airport – a 280 guest room Holiday Inn and a 262 guest room ibis Budget.

Set to open in 2021, both hotels form part of Manchester Airport’s major £1billion redevelopment project.

Nicholas Northam, Managing Director for the UK at Interstate Hotels & Resorts, said: “We are proud to announce these two major new signings, marking our first move into Manchester Airport – one of the UK’s busiest airports.”

“The airport is undergoing significant development at present and it’s very exciting to be a part of its new era.”

Work on both properties is expected to start early 2019.

Nicholas Northam added: “The last twelve months have been strong for Interstate and these latest signings see us starting 2019 on a real high. We’re looking forward to work getting underway at Manchester Airport in the near future.”

In 2018 the third-party hotel management firm opened five new hotels across the UK, including two Hotel Indigo® properties in both Manchester Victoria and Durham, the AC Hotel Belfast – with a 112-seater Jean-Christophe Novelli restaurant – and the Hampton by Hilton Blackpool.

Additionally, the company signed operational agreements for a number of high profile properties including Bodmin Jail, the Hampton by Hilton Hamilton Racecourse and a new 135 guest room golf resort and spa at Portstewart, Northern Ireland.

Interstate Hotels & Resorts has an operational portfolio of more than 100 properties across the UK and Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia.

The firm recently expanded its portfolio with the addition of 12 new properties across Western Europe, with a combined total of 1,732 guest rooms.
