itsu’s first site at Heathrow T5 became a firm favourite with both passengers and ground staff alike who loved the Asian-inspired chain’s ‘eat beautiful’ offering, which is nutritious, flavoursome but low in calories and saturated fat. In what has now become a much anticipated return, Heathrow are excited to welcome itsu back to the terminal.
Ben Crowley, Head of Food and Beverage at Heathrow said “When itsu left the airport passengers and staff alike kept asking when it would return so we’re all thrilled. It’ll be like welcoming back a dearly-loved friend.”
itsu’s new store is located in the departure lounge with a stunning airfield view. The brand’s iconic butterfly will take centre stage with a stunning ‘butterflies in flight’ installation, created in partnership with Cinimod.
The offering itself has been created with passengers in mind. Cleverly-designed packagingand a vibrant range of bespoke products exclusive to the T5 store have been created, all of which are perfect for on-board dining.
Said Takhamt, Director of Development for itsu said, “Opening the new store in T5 is a really exciting step for us. The site is beautiful and we think guests are going to love the new product and packaging designs. Whether you want to sit down for a bite to eat before flying or grab food for your flight, we feel we’ve created something really special, just for Heathrow”.
