Pedersen Hotels has lodged plans with North Somerset Council for a 250-bedroom hotel at Bristol Airport. The hotel forms a key component of plans for a £150-million redevelopment of Bristol Airport. Pedersen Hotels already owns three other hotels in Bristol. It sees the new £20-million hotel as providing much-needed accommodation for passengers flying from Bristol Airport on early-morning flights, as well as lodging for pilots, aircrews and airline staff.

The hotel will be a hundred metres from the terminal and will have a dedicated footpath connecting it to the main building. According to Pedersen Hotels, the new airport will provide 125 jobs and will not cannibalise traffic from hotels in North Somerset or Bristol. Bristol Airport is the largest airport in Britain to lack its own hotel.

Facilities at the new hotel will include a number of meeting rooms, a restaurant and a bar. However, Pedersen expects most hotel customers to be overnighting. Bristol Airport has also applied for permission to expand the terminal building and build a new public transport station. Expansion plans for the airport forecast passenger numbers rising to ten million per annum, from six million. The council will be considering the hotel application separately.
