The Ben Gurion Airport will a welcome Brown Hotel.

The new project is going: Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport is set to get a new Brown Hotel which will give guests a new airport hotel experience.

Israel’s main international airport is set to receive a new airport hotel, following Brown Hotels’ win of the Ben Gurion Airport hotel tender.

We find out more about this new venture.

Brown Hotels secures airport hotel tender

The tender for a 200-key hotel near Terminal 3 of Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport has been won by Brown Hotels. The group’s tender win follows a series of unsuccessful tender processes, which attracted no bidders, and so was revised to improve the terms, finally cementing Brown Hotels as the winning bidder.

Together with Aman Computers, the hotel group will seek to build a 200-room hotel within walking distance of Terminal 3 but will have to fend off competition from other new hotels close to the airport. One such property is being built by Nitsba Holdings Ltd. at Airport City.

Israel – a tourism hotspot

The new Brown Ben Gurion Airport hotel will provide much-needed accommodation for the increased number of tourists visiting Israel and coming through this airport. The passenger footfall through the airport has reached a staggering 25 million annually, and there has long been a dearth of accommodation close to the airport, which serves both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Leon Avigad, founder and owner of Brown Hotels, said, “The idea is to make something that will give those flying a genuine reason to stay there. Our challenge is that the airport is close to Tel Aviv and there are no connecting flights. Our ambition is to build an airport that won’t just be a regular airport hotel with a balcony overlooking the takeoffs and landings and a fitness room. The aim is that guests won’t get fed up with staying in an airport hotel.”
