New Hotel at Vienna Airport: Decision in Favor for Vastint Hospitality and MOXY Hotels
New hotel to go into operation at the beginning of 2017
Moxy Hotels, the new stylish economy brand by Marriott International, plans to open its first 400 room hotel in Vienna, Austria
in 2017 at Vienna Airport following a competitive pitch process with more than 60 hotel operators and investors. The investor
for this project is Vastint Hospitality B.V., a company belonging to Inter IKEA. Moxy Hotels opened its first hotel
at Milan Malpensa airport in September 2014 and has further hotels planned for Germany, UK and Norway over the next two years.
Vienna Airport serves as the entity granting surface rights to build on the land it owns. The corresponding license agreement
was signed today with the investment company implementing the project. The validity of the contract is subject to the condition
precedent of it securing the approval of the supervisory boards of the investor, which is expected shortly.
“The new Moxy Hotel at Vienna Airport is a further step in the consistent implementation of our strategy designed to create
an Airport City. We managed to select the best project from a very large number of tenders. As a result, hotel capacity at
Vienna Airport will increase by 400 rooms, and many new jobs will be created, which is particularly important in economically
challenging times”, explained Günther Ofner, Member of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG.
“Moxy Hotels offers today’s global traveller a stylish travel experience with modern technology at an affordable price and
we are delighted for the opportunity to open our first hotel in Austria” commented Markus Lehnert, Regional Vice President
International Hotel Development Europe, Marriott International.
The hotel will be built directly behind the Office Park at Vienna Airport on part of the area currently used as Parking Lot
C. In this way, it will be possible for hotel guests to conveniently use the passenger tunnel to reach the airport terminals.
Conference guests will be able to make use of the conference center in Office Park 3 in close proximity to the planned hotel.
Up until now the on-site hotel offering of Vienna Airport has been in the four star category consisting of about 500 rooms.
This offering will now be complemented by a modern and attractive lifestyle economy hotel which on balance makes the airport
even more attractive.

and student properties across Europe. Currently its focus is on acquiring sites for hotel development in Germany, the
