Doncaster Sheffield Airport is set to expand its retail offering with the opening of a new 76-seat Costa Coffee planned for late summer 2019.
The £315,000 investment in partnership with Caterleisure Ltd. forms part of the airport’s 20-year Masterplan. With a record number of passengers forecast for 2019, as well as new long-haul destinations to Sanford, Florida and Cancun, Mexico and 11 new routes announced since last August, the airport said the expansion of its retail offering is an important part of its continued growth.
“We’re delighted to be working with Caterleisure Ltd to bring a brand-new Costa to the terminal. It’s an important step forward in our continued journey as the UK’s favourite airport, recognised for its easy, friendly, relaxed service,” commented Ian Smith, commercial & passenger experience director, Doncaster Sheffield Airport, “As well as offering more choice for our customers, it brings more jobs to the airport and is an important strand of our 20-year masterplan to keep investing in our awarding winning terminal experience.”
Construction work on the new Costa will commence soon and is due to open this summer offering full service and takeaway facilities.
Christine Thorpe, managing director of Caterleisure, said: “We’re excited to partner with Costa Coffee to open this new store at Doncaster Sheffield Airport. This follows on from branches that have been opened in both Cardiff and Isle of Man airports.
“We hope that customers use the store to pick up their favourite handcrafted coffee with ease whilst on the go or as the ideal place to kick back and relax ahead of their flight.”
