A few months before the grand opening, İstanbul New Airport announces another attraction – a modernistic and futuristic hotel operated by YOTEL. It will be one of the biggest airport hotels in the world, with both airside and landside access, featuring 451 rooms. Located conveniently inside the main terminal building, it will be easily accessible to both business and leisure travellers, as well as airline crew and other businesses within the airport and local environment.
“We are making history with İstanbul New Airport”, says Kadri Samsunlu, General Manager and Chief Executive Officer of İGA Airport Operation. “YOTEL will contribute to our perfect passenger experience approach with unique innovative elemental luxury and technologically decked space.” Commenting on the brand’s first investment in Turkey, Hubert Viriot, YOTEL’s CEO adds: “We are extremely honoured to be chosen for this exciting project. İstanbul aspires to high growth success, just like YOTEL, so we are a perfect match.”
YOTEL will introduce its clever 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.
