After a successful pilot project, AccorHotels is now set to launch a new mobile accommodation concept that would add a greatly enhanced degree of flexibility to its hospitality offerings.
Dubbed Flying nest, this concept has now moved from the pilot project to the commercialization phase for Accor’s varied and diverse set of B-to-B markets. Experts are describing the new program as on that is innovative and ephemeral, with the potential to have major ramifications for both Accor and the larger international hospitality business.
More About Flying Nest
Flying Nest is a new concept that features a bold design. It’s a mobile and sustainable accommodation concept that lines up well with AccorHotel’s famous and innovative approach to constantly rethinking the future of the hospitality business.
As with many of AccorHotel’s previous efforts in this area, this one takes into account strong trends currently at work within the hospitality business now, including a rising preference among guests for exclusisve, local and intense experiences.
First developed for B-to-B clientele such as event organizing agencies, exhibition organizers, festivals, events, corporate clients, and other AccorHotels partners, industry officials are also saying that the Flying Nest program could eventually be made available to B-to-C markets as soon as 2019. It has the potential to provide customers with a unique hospitality experience during events as well as to meet accommodation needs when brick and mortar hotels find themselves about to approach a saturation point.
Key Flying Nest Benefits
The key benefits of the flying nest are obviously that as a mobile and flexible accommodation concept, it provides hotels with an enhanced degree of quick and easy transportation for the modules that it consists of.
To assemble Flying Nest guestrooms and deliver the concept to those who wish to partake in blazing fast time, AccorHotels is partnering with Capsa, which is a Lyon-based startup company that just so happens to specialize in the conversions of modules like these.
More About the Design
Ora-ïto, one of the most celebrated designers of his generation, has designed these mobile guestrooms. Created to offer a functional and pleasant experience, each island consists of six modules cladded with raw and natural materials and decked out with all the comfort of a hotel room (Sweet Bed by ibis bedding, private bathroom, air-conditioned living area and Wi-Fi connection).
