Commenting on the announcement, Sébastien Bazin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said:

“AccorHotels delivered another robust performance in the third quarter. The positive operating trends observed in our key markets in the first half were confirmed, and early signs of a recovery emerged in Latin America. The Group continued its rapid development. In the course of the quarter, our hotel base crossed the symbolic mark of 600,000 rooms and our pipeline reached a record level, reflecting the increasingly strong attractiveness of our brand portfolio, which now includes Orient Express and Nextdoor, and will soon extend to Mantra, BreakFree and Peppers. This favorable trend is expected to continue until the end of the year, allowing us to reach the upper end of the target EBIT range announced in July.”
