Offering abundant options of hotels to domestic travellers and overseas tourists taking tickets for India flights, US-based Wyndham Group will be expanding its operations massively in years to come.
In few years to come, business sand leisure vacationers making air ticket bookings on flights bound to India will have a host of added options as far as accommodation is concerned. The US-based Wyndham Hotel Group has plans in place to expand its operations in India by establishing as many as 70 properties in India by 2016. These properties will come up under various brands of the group.
The hotel chain is targeting the mid and mid-premium market, allowing budget travellers with cheap tickets on flights to enjoy quality accommodation alternatives in different parts of the country.
Under brands like Ramada, Wyndham, Days Inn and Ramada Plaza, the group already has operations in the country. In next few years, the firm hopes to bring in globally recognized brands like Howard Johnson and Hawthorn Suits to India. The first property under the Howard Johnson would come up next year in Bangalore, a southern city of the country. It will cater to mid-level domestic travellers and foreign visitors taking relatively cheap flights tickets to the country.
“India is a key market for us and we have nearly doubled our presence in the past two years,” Wyndham’s Managing Director (APAC), Frank Trampert was quoted in Business Standard, a leading financial daily.
As per the news report, in the opening phase 22 properties will be developed in places like Mumbai, Tirupati, Lucknow and Bhubaneswar and will serve both local and overseas travellers grabbing flights tickets for travel to these cities of India.
