Soon, More Hotels to Greet Flyers Taking India Flights

Finding it tough to locate a quality hotel room in India may soon be a thing of past for those taking country bound flights! Taking a cue from a host of other hospitality firms that have decided to open up hotel properties in India in the recent past, another major global player has announced its plans to establish properties in the nation.

Much to the delight of domestic and international vacationers taking flights to India, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has divulged expansion plans for India by establishing as many as 150 properties across the nation by 2020.  

As of now, the firm has 12 properties in the nation under three brands - InterContinental, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn, catering to local population and those on flights to the ancient nation for tourism or business interests. Holiday Inn Express, another brand of the company, will open up in November, serving those on flights bound to the west part of the country.

India’s stock as a popular vacation destination is on upswing for long now, with many wanting to take flights to the country to sample a slice of the region’s legendary cultural diversity and vibrant traditions. However, there have been some concerns when it comes to accommodation options in the country as various reports reveal that demand greatly outstrips supply in Indian hotel sector. But things have taken a turn for the better now with several firms making investment plans for the nation, much to the cheer of country’s tourism industry as well as those taking flights to Indian cities.
