New cafés open at Stansted Airport

By Tanya Filippelli

Two new cafés have opened at Stansted Airport as part of an £80m terminal transformation project to improve services and facilities for passengers.

French artisan style bar, Café Balzar, and Joes Coffeehouse have opened in the pre-security area and are open 24 hours a day.

Both cafés are concessions of travel catering company TRG and include free wi-fi that’s available for one hour throughout the terminal.

Michelle Madeley, head of retail for MAG, which runs Stansted Airport, and responsible for food and beverage development at Stansted said, “During 2014 passengers will see many changes and more choice in food and beverage options at Stansted Airport and we are very excited that TRG’s new units have opened for business.

“Phase one of the £80m terminal development project to relocate security search and extend the departure lounge by over 60% is nearing completion. Phase two concentrates on services in the departure lounge, including a dedicated food and beverage area to suit all budgets and tastes, and we’ve had submissions from a number of leading operators and exciting new concepts and brands.”

Café Balzar is a continental-themed all day café-bar and Joes Coffeehouse offers a grab-and-go option for travellers on the move.

Nick Ayerst, TRG Concessions managing director said, “The new offerings compliment the current food and drink offers and no doubt start to indicate the future changes to come in the airport. Both are open 24 hours a day, meaning no matter what time passengers travel through Stansted they can get freshly cooked and quality food and drinks at all times.”
