Plans for a new 412-bedroom hotel at Manchester City Airport have been approved by the city council.
Proposals were submitted in December for a nine-storey hotel situated on Chicago Avenue, which will be run by Tribe under the umbrella of Accor and will also compromise food and drinking facilities.
The hotel which is considered to be “well-placed to meet airport core demand, being in close proximity to the multi-modal transport interchange and T2” will also create 83 new jobs within the community.
Documents submitted in support of the planning application said: “The proposed development supports the growth of the airport, catering for the needs of a growing number of passengers and visitors and it also forms part of the economic and employment growth in the Airport City economic zone.
“It will enable the Airport to continue to fulfil its economic driver role for the city region, by freeing up the ability to deliver schemes that enhance the capacity of the Airport itself and deliver the nationally significant Airport City scheme.”
