Exeter International Airport is slated to get a major new hotel from a famous global name in the hotel business. Plans for the 160-bedroom hotel at the Exeter airport were recently announced. Building work is slated to start in late autumn and should take a year to complete.

The hotel development will feature accommodation by the Hampton by Hilton hotel brand., as well as meeting and dining venue facilities. The complex is expected to open by the end of 2011. Sanguine Hospitality Management Company, which is based in Bristol and is developing four other hotels in the UK, will operated the new Exeter facilities.

The announcement is being hailed as a progressive move in support of the airport, as well as the Flybe Training Academy and the nearby Skypark business area. Jamie Christon, MD of Exeter Airport, said the airport was delighted to be able to make the announcement about Hampton by Hilton bringing first-class accommodation to both passengers at the airport and students of the aviation academy.

Simon Witts, director of the Flybe Training Academy, also welcomed the imminent arrival of a famous global brand to enhance the facilities for the academy and airport passengers. The academy is due to be completed in December. It has 25 classrooms and four flight simulators. It already uses thirty hotel rooms in the area per night and expects to see that demand double.
