SSP opens first Burger King at Edinburgh Airport

Operator of food and beverage outlets in travel locations worldwide, SSP Group is launching the first Burger King at Edinburgh Airport.

The new concession will allow passengers to choose from Burger King’s full menu, including its famous flame-broiled Whoppers, fries, salads and drinks. The restaurant will feature the latest technology, including self-service kiosks for customers to place orders on digital screens before collecting at the till, and a children’s interactive wall to keep youngsters entertained – a first for the UK market.

SSP currently operates M&S Simply Food and Starbucks units at Edinburgh Airport, which is Scotland’s busiest airport and welcomed 13.4 million passengers last year. This will be SSP’s first move into the Edinburgh airside operation and will form part of EDI’s wider redevelopment programme.

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.”

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 announcing more new outlets soon.”
