SSP has secured a multi-million euro deal to operate five cafés and restaurants at London City Airport, commencing on April 1, 2011.
Two new cafés will begin trading by the summer, and three existing outlets will be refurbished and enhanced during a programme scheduled to be completed by August of this year.
At the City Bar and Grill, an extensive wine list will feature some of the world’s finest wines such as Château Pétrus.
The upmarket 'rhubarb' Food Design already has an enviable reputation at leading airports, glittering events and high-profile London venues including Bond and Brook at Fenwick of Bond Street and Gallery Mess at Saatchi Gallery.
Bringing an authentic café experience to the terminal, Illy Espressamente Café will offer premium artisan coffees. The new facilities will also include two Panopolis bakeries, one located landside, one airside.
Richard Gooding OBE, chief executive of London City Airport, says: ‘We warmly welcome SSP into the London City Airport family. SSP’s service and dining offerings will complement and further enhance our passenger experience.’
