Scandic Hotels Group president and CEO Jens Mathiesen said: “Bookings from leisure travellers were high during the summer and the important season for corporate guests and meetings has gotten off to a good start. The hotel market is demonstrating resilience against high inflation and interest rates and hotel stays and travel continue to be prioritised both for business and pleasure.
“Both the number of room nights sold and the occupancy rate increased while prices continued to develop positively. This resulted in Scandic’s highest RevPAR ever and net sales reached an all-time high level of Skr6.3bn. Room revenue is developing positively and in our F&B business, we have improved profitability by continuing to optimise pricing, purchasing and efficiency.”
By the end of the recorded period, Scandic reported having eight newly planned hotels comprising 2,252 rooms and five planned exits totalling 753 rooms.
