SSP has agreed an eight-year deal to run two new Burger King outlets at Alicante Airport’s new third Terminal. They are scheduled to open by April 2011.
The two restaurants will account for approximately a quarter of the catering area at the facility and will occupy nearly 1,000 square metres of the 4,000 square metres dedicated to food and beverage.
Located in the check-in area, the first outlet will seat 80 visitors and is expected to serve over 1,000 customers each day. A second unit, which will be situated airside in the departure hall food court has a capacity of 200, and will serve 3,000 passengers per day.
“We have been operating Burger King successfully in Spain since 1989 at leading travel locations including South Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Malaga Airports, as well as at Alicante since 1995,” says Blanca Ripoll, managing director of SSP Spain.
