“It is a milestone in our major refurbishment, which will enhance the experience for our passengers. We hope that people will get a taste of the world here and be inspired before their journey,” says Niclas Törnell, acting commercial director at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.
The Food Court concept includes four different food areas: Street Food, Deli, Coffee & Sandwiches and Good to Go. The Street Food concept has been developed in partnership with the renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson, and the restaurant will be the first of its kind in the Gothenburg area.
In the Deli shop, people can either eat in or buy food for take-away. The selection has a touch of Sweden in general and the country’s west coast in particular – lingonberry jam and salmon as well as herring and other seafood. There is also a Coffee & Sandwich section in the Food Court as well as take-away food from Good to Go.
“With the new Food Court, passengers get variety and an attractive offering that clearly reflects their needs as well as current trends in this area. There is something here for every taste, whether people have a lot of time or are in a hurry to get to their flight,” Mr Törnell adds.
The restaurant has seating for 200 people, which is divided up in different ways in terms of placement, style, furnishings and comfort in order to provide the right kind of setting for all kinds of parties to eat in. Another new feature of the Food Court is the possibility of eating with a view of the big check-in hall.
“Göteborg Landvetter is a strategically important airport for us, and it will be even more important after the international departure hall is refurbished. We must always renew ourselves and consider what our customers want today. With the opening of the new Food Court, we are further developing and expanding our offering,” says Lars Edengréen, president of SSP Sweden, which operates the Food Court and other restaurants at the airport.
Göteborg Landvetter Airport is currently undergoing the largest refurbishment in its history. In February, a new security checkpoint for international passengers was inaugurated, with a unique environment in an airport context. Once the new departure hall opens at the turn of the year, passengers will have access to an additional 1,000 square metres of shopping space with new restaurants in a light, open-plan setting.
