Nordic Choice Hotels has announced plans to open a new property at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport.

The 463-room hotel will operate under the Comfort Hotel brand, and will feature a restaurant, sky bar and gym.

The property is scheduled to open in 2019, and will be located next to Sky City, the airport’s shopping and restaurant area.

Nordic Choice Hotels is a franchisee of Choice Hotels International, and already operates the Clarion Hotel Arlanda Airport, but said that it had seen “a surge in demand for both accommodation and social spaces at the airport”.

The new hotel will begin construction next spring, with an opening date of summer 2019.

Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group also operates a hotel next to Sky City at Stockholm Arlanda, under its Radisson Blu brand.
