TOULOUSE, FRANCE--(Marketwire - Dec 3, 2012) - Welcoming the growth of a leading airline manufacturer, a prominent four-star hotel in Toulouse joined in celebrating the October inauguration of an Airbus A350 factory.
As the nearest lodging to the new Airbus A350 assembly plant, the distinctive Courtyard Toulouse Airport hotel recognizes the importance of the new factory to the area's economy and is pleased to support the plant and the many local families whose livelihoods come from employment in the area's surrounding corporate factories.
The new plant opening took place October 23, 2012 with French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault on hand to name the plant after Roger Beteille, also known as the "Father of Airbus" and a pioneer in the industry. During the ceremonies it was noted that the A350 is the first model in a new line of Airbus jets developed to reduce fuel consumption through the use of lightweight carbon-composite materials.
As a premier hotel near the Airbus office, Toulouse corporate visitors frequent the Courtyard by Marriott when spending time at nearby operations and enjoy lodging within walking distance of the Airbus Saint Martin du Touch France offices. Even before inauguration of the new 74,000 square metre facility, workers were busy constructing the first A350 that will be used specifically for stress testing. This new plant activity combined with production in other nearby plants has resulted in Airbus becoming a prominent corporate client of the Toulouse hotel near Pierre Baudis Congress Center. Since the ceremony, production at the new Airbus plant has intensified with the expectation of producing 10 Airbus A350 planes per month by late 2018.
As guests of the Courtyard's four-star Toulouse hotel corporate travelers enjoy well-appointed and fully equipped business guest rooms and hotel suites featuring luxury bedding ensembles, a spacious work area and ergonomic chair, complimentary high speed Internet access, a robe and slippers, International cable/satellite service, premium movie channels, complimentary bottled water and room service. This stylish Toulouse hotel with airport shuttle also offers a full American breakfast and is home to the Oleo Pazzo, a Mediterranean restaurant offering southern-style and home-cooked menu items with both indoor and garden terrace dining.
