Ä°stanbul airport to house 451-room hotel operated by YOTEL

Ä°GA, the builder and operator of Ä°stanbul New Airport (Ä°NA) for 25 years, and YOTEL, the London based hotel group, have signed an exclusive hotel management contract, the company said.

The hotel will be one of the biggest airport hotels in the world with both airside and landside access to 451 rooms. Located conveniently inside the main terminal building, it will be easily accessible to business and leisure travellers, airline crew and businesses within the airport and local environment.

The capacity of Ä°NA will be expanded to cater up to 200 million people once all four phases are completed and will have a total of six runways and three terminals. Ä°NA will connect over 350 destinations from Istanbul and host nearly 100 airlines.

YOTEL will introduce its design and use of technology in two zones – one airside (102 rooms) and one landside (349 rooms). Both parts of the new hotel will feature public spaces including YOTEL´s signature Club Lounge concept with smart vending, co-working and relaxing areas, wellness centres and planted glazed atriums to connect people with nature.

In addition, the landside zone will include a restaurant, bar and 24/7 gym. The new hotel will also feature flexible meeting spaces with seamless technology, ideal for small or large, formal and casual meetings, conveniently located for airport businesses and passengers alike.
