Scandic’s newest hotel in Norway will be located at the Oslo Airport, and is scheduled to be open by the end of next year.

In 2007, Scandic announced its growth plan, which included strengthening its position in the Nordic region, along with establishing a presence in Russia, eastern and northern Europe. In the last three months alone, three new Scandic hotel projects have been announced for Norway: Bodö, Stavanger and Oslo Airport.

“We are keen to consolidate our position in Norway and the three hotel projects we currently have underway in strategic locations will indeed give the Scandic brand a further boost,” said Frank Fiskers, the president and CEO of Scandic. “It is actually quite exciting to be the ‘underdog’ for once, as it is no secret that we would like to have a stronger position in Norway,” he added.

The new property at Oslo Airport will feature 250 guest rooms, a bar, restaurant, fitness centre and fully-equipped conference facilities, accommodating up to 850 attendees. The hotel’s location will be just to the west of the airport and the closely property to the terminal building. Plenty of parking will available and a shuttle bus will take passengers to the terminal in approximately six minutes. Construction is scheduled to begin in August of this year, with a completion date of late 2009.
