One of the UK’s premier burger restaurants is to open at Edinburgh Airport as part
of an expansion of food and beverage options in the terminal. Burger King will open
later this year, offering its famous Whoppers, fries and drinks to passengers in the
departures area.

In a first for the UK market, there will also be a children’s interactive wall to keep
youngsters entertained, while self-service kiosks for customers to order on digital
screens will also be introduced.

It will be operated by SSP Group PLC, a leading operator of food and beverage
outlets in travel locations worldwide. They currently operate the M&S Simply Food
and Starbucks units at the airport, with this latest concession being their first move
into the airside operation.

Gail Taylor, Director of Retail and Property at Edinburgh Airport said:

“One of the brands passengers have continuously mentioned they want to see at
Edinburgh Airport is Burger King so we’ve listened and are delighted to deliver that
for them.

“Quality and variety are key considerations for us when we look at our food and
beverage options and we’re always looking to offer greater choice, something which
our new terminal expansion will allow us to do and we look forward to confirming
more new outlets soon.”

Simon Smith, CEO of SSP UK & Ireland, said:

“We’re delighted to announce the opening of our first Burger King unit at Edinburgh
Airport, which will offer greater choice and service to both local and international
travellers. This is our 30th Burger King restaurant to launch in the UK, and reflects
our ongoing commitment to the brand and to providing our customers with the best
offers from the most renowned names in food and beverage.”
