Saudi Arabia’s Millennium Madinah Airport, scheduled to open in Q2 of 2018, is celebrating its very first participation at the Arabian Travel Market.
During the event, the property will share its latest updates with potential clients and existing partners.
Standing in Al Madinah al-Munawwarah – the second holiest city in Islam after Makkah – Millennium Madinah Airport will cater to both corporate and leisure travellers, as well as Hajj and Umrah pilgrims.
Housing 227 rooms and suites, the five-star property exudes a relaxing ambience with top notch facilities and dining options ranging from a lobby restaurant, an executive lounge, a crew lounge, an outdoor terrace café and in-room dining services.
General manager, Millennium Madinah Airport, Murad Al Sabah commented on the property: “We are excited to introduce the new Millennium Madinah Airport to co-exhibitors and visitors attending ATM. The hotel market in the KSA is experiencing steady growth with the opening of new hotels to accommodate the millions of visitors every year.
“We hope to contribute to this growth and we are confident that Millennium Madinah Airport will cater to all types of travellers, especially now that new tourism attractions are being developed in the kingdom as part of Vision 2030.”
Saudi Arabia is expecting a significant increase in the number of luxury hotels in the Kingdom by 2022. Reports noted that as of January this year, the Kingdom has 187 hotel projects in the planning, final planning and in construction phases. The construction phase, which makes up the largest portion of the pipeline, has approximately 40,000 guestrooms in 94 projects.
“Millions of Muslims are arriving every year to visit the Holy Cities of Makkah and Madinah so there is a growing demand for religious tourism. By being visible at ATM where many stakeholders and decision makers are present, we hope to create more awareness about Millennium Madinah Airport and open a lot of opportunities for partnership,” Al Sabah concluded.
