Costa Coffee has reopened at Southampton Airport after being closed for 17 months due to the pandemic.
Following discussions with business partners at the transport hub, the store is welcoming back passengers from today (August 13).
The reopening is another in the list of outlets who are welcoming back passengers at Southampton Airport.
Costa, like other retail partners, are operating with effective safety measures in store so passengers can visit safely.
The store, which is now operated by WHSmith after they took over the contract to run the popular coffee spot, will be using recyclable disposable cups at the site, continuing the organisation’s commitment to sustainability.
Gemma Young, commercial manager at Southampton Airport, said: “We have been working hard at the airport with our business partners and are delighted to see Costa Coffee open after 17 months.
“Our recovery from the pandemic will take longer but we are determined that our passengers will have more choice throughout our airport while maintaining their safety.
“We continue to support all our business partners with their reopening plans at our terminal.
“Everyone has been working non-stop and I want to thank every business at Southampton Airport for their hard work and dedication.”
Spencer Sheen, Business Development Director at WHSmith said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Costa Coffee to operate and reopen this retail offer for customers in Southampton Airport.
"As a key franchise partner for the nation’s favourite coffee shop brand, we look forward to welcoming customers to the Costa store with a great range of hot and cold beverages and food and a welcome space to relax.”
