Paris-based airport operator Groupe ADP (formerly Aéroports de Paris), which owns and manages France's Charles de Gaulle Airport, Orly Airport and Le Bourget Airport, has signed an agreement with Vastint Hospitality Group for a new Moxy hotel in the Roissypole Ouest zone within the Charles de Gaulle Airport complex. The 292-guestroom hotel is slated to open next spring, 13 months after construction begins.  

The property will be Vastint Hospitality’s 20th hotel investment in Europe, and Vastint's first development in Francen. Groupe ADP will be landowner and developer for the project.

"With the long-term increase in air traffic, the construction of this Moxy hotel adds to the continued improvement of the accommodation facilities at the airport, as well as considerably enhancing the quality of hotel services provided to our passengers and customers of our business districts," Serge Grzybowski, director of real estate for Groupe ADP, said in a statement. "This new hotel project enables us to promote our property by developing the airport city. Increasing the hotel offering at Paris-Charles de Gaulle has made it possible to double the airport’s accommodation capacity over a period of nine years, bringing the total up to 3,700 rooms by 2019 compared to 1,700 in 2010."
