Aerotel: Making airport hotels highly accessible for Chinese tourists

About Aerotel Airport Hotels

After a long flight, what could feel more like home than a hot shower and a cozy bed? Aerotel comes very close.

Aerotel is an airport hotel designed for commuters and travelers with operations spanning 9 international airports and was recently recognized by the International Hotel Forum Organization as ‘The Most Preferred Airport Hotel in China Award’.

 Aerotel’s footprint extends to some of the world’s busiest airports, including but not limited to Beijing Daxing International Airport and Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport.

Aside from its prime location, Aerotel also offers hourly booking, F&B services, and meeting rooms for anyone who is on the go. While Covid has undoubtedly affected global travel, China is experiencing a rise in travel again in the midst of Covid recovery.

With confidence in air travel picking up again in China, Aerotel's team was fast to pre-empt growing traffic and stay digitally ahead of travel recovering by working with Chinafy to upgrade its website.
