The Novotel Edinburgh Park also allows a ‘Park and Fly’ service with 95 parking spaces allocated just for it’s guests.
Qatar Airways’ passengers arriving from around the world will be able to enjoy end-to-end comfort when visiting Scotland for business or for pleasure. This is consistent with their policy of providing premium travellers with an additional experience and with their strategy of expanding into the hotel business.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “The Novotel Edinburgh Park is an excellent addition to our travel portfolio, complementing our five-star hotel the Oryx Rotana in Doha and Sheraton Skyline Hotel Heathrow, making it easy for passengers who wish to spend some time in Edinburgh before travelling further afield in Scotland.”
