Local officials have approved a plan to build two major hotel properties near Aberdeen airport.

The BBC reported midday on Thursday that ABZ Development Ltd has gained the official green light from Aberdeen City Council for a £25m investment that will see the construction of a 112-bedroom Ibis hotel as well as 140-bedroom Novotel hotel.

The two facilities are to be built adjacent to one another in Dyce at the forthcoming ABZ business park.

Development manager Rita Stephen from the City and Shire Economic Future (Acsef) told the media that the development was “excellent news” for the local community and will “significantly” boost choice of accommodation for both leisure and business travellers.

She went on to add that the combined 250-bedroom development highlights investors’ confidence in Aberdeen and the region’s buoyancy in the commercial real estate market.

Meanwhile, George Stevenson, the director of ABZ Development Ltd, said that Aberdeen has long suffered a shortage of ample hotel supply for visitors.

The news comes on the heels of the announcement that Aberdeen airport has been officially renamed to Aberdeen International amid the former BAA’s rebranding scheme. Airport figureheads said the new name reflects the facility’s efforts to expand its reach into international markets.
