Doncaster Sheffield Airport has said it will open a new 76-seat Costa Coffee branch in late summer thanks to a £315,000 investment in partnership with Caterleisure Ltd.
The airport said this development forms an important part of its 20-year Masterplan.
It also noted the growth of its retail offer would help it cope with extra demand, with a record number of passengers forecast for 2019, along with new long-haul destinations to Sanford, Florida and Cancun, Mexico, as well as 11 new routes announced since last August.
Ian Smith, Commercial & Passenger Experience Director at the airport, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Caterleisure Ltd to bring a brand new Costa to the terminal.
“It’s an important step forward in our continued journey as the UK’s favourite airport, recognised for its easy, friendly, relaxed service.
“As well as offering more choice for our customers, it brings more jobs to the airport and is an important strand of our 20-year masterplan to keep investing in our awarding winning terminal experience.”
Christine Thorpe, Managing Director of Caterleisure, said: “We’re excited to partner with Costa Coffee to open this new store at Doncaster Sheffield Airport.
“This follows on from branches that have been opened in both Cardiff and Isle of Man airports.
“We hope that customers use the store to pick up their favourite handcrafted coffee with ease whilst on the go or as the ideal place to kick back and relax ahead of their flight.”
Construction work on the new Costa will soon begin, as will recruitment for baristas to staff the cafe.
