The development of its one-of-a-kind in-terminal airport hotel concept Aerotel has recently seen two strategic openings. Aerotel at Beijing Daxing International Airport represents the Group's largest property amongst its portfolio and the largest in-terminal airport hotel in China.

In the 3rd quarter of 2020, Aerotel will be launched in Sydney Airport as the only in-terminal airport hotel in Australia.

The brand's inaugural location Aerotel Singapore is undergoing renovation of its outdoor swimming pool - the world's first outdoor pool at the airport – planned to open end of 2019 with enhanced services.
As the world's first airport meet and greet service available for all travellers, the Group is planning a thoughtful expansion to introduce Allways and the latest launch is at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, joining existing service points in Toronto, New Delhi, Macau, and porterage service in New York.
