North Somerset Council has approved plans for the first on-site hotel at Bristol Airport. Construction of the development could start by next year, the council’s South Area Committee, responsible for overseeing approval, was told.

Despite being in the top nine airports in the UK based on the number of passengers it handles, Bristol Airport is the only one of Britain’s top 15 airports not to have any on-site hotel. The new hotel is expected to launch before the end of 2012 and should result in the creation of 140 full-time jobs.

Robert Sinclair is Bristol Airport’s CEO. He said the airport is aiming to become a world-class regional airport for the South West and having an on-site hotel is seen as critical to achieving this target.

The hotel will be located about 100 metres from the airport’s terminal building. Over the next few months, the airport and developers Pedersen Airport Hotels will select a hotel brand for the development. Once launched, the on-site hotel will give passengers booked on flights departing early in the morning or late at night the choice of a convenient place to stay before they continue their trip.
