Over £1.2m has been spent on upgrading and refurbishing the three Costa outlets in the airport and this is the final part of the terminal-wide coffee shop improvement project.
With outdoor seating available for an alfresco caffeine fix, a wide selection of delicious hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks and comfortable high backed chairs, the new store offers customers a comfortable environment to relax and unwind in, whether they’ve just flown in or are waiting for friends or family to arrive.
Numerous plug sockets equipped with USB points are conveniently located throughout the shop making it the perfect place to charge phones and tablets or catch up on emails.
The new Costa outlet was officially opened by John Watson, the airport’s Chief Commercial Officer, who even tried his hand as a barista making cappuccinos for his team.
He said: “It’s a great pleasure to open the new Costa Coffee at our international arrivals area. It offers customers a bright and airy environment to relax in whether they’ve just come off a flight or are waiting for passengers to arrive.
“This newly-refurbished coffee shop is the final piece of our terminal-wide coffee improvement project which has seen us completely change the selection on offer, giving customers the best choice possible.
“We wanted to change the perception of the traditional airport coffee shop and have worked closely with our colleagues at Costa to design the new outlet with our customers in mind.”
Stuart Shepherd, Retail Development Manager for Costa Edinburgh, said: “We’re delighted to continue our successful partnership with Edinburgh Airport which has been ongoing for almost ten years now.
“The new coffee shop we opened today is the culmination of a lot of hard work by our team here at the airport. In just three weeks we’ve doubled the size of our previous location at international arrivals and now have an 18 strong team which takes the total number of Costa staff at the airport to over 60.
“We’ve just launched our new summer campaign and are hoping the sun stays out so our customers can enjoy our products in our outdoor seating area.”
