BIRM­ING­HAM Air­port has an­nounced two new open­ings at the trans­port hub.

SSP Group, an op­er­a­tor of food and bev­er­age out­lets in travel lo­ca­tions world­wide, is to launch an M& S Food to Go early next year while No1 Lounges has opened a sec­ond pas­sen­ger lounge.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive of SSP Group Kate Swann said: “We’re ex­tremely ex­cited to be open­ing the first ever air­side M& S.

“Bring­ing to­gether M& S’s food in­no­va­tion and SSP’s op­er­a­tional ex­per­tise, the new store has been de­signed for air­port cus­tomers.

“We’ve worked closely with the devel­op­ment team at M& S to cre­ate an of­fer­ing that will ap­peal to peo­ple fly­ing through Birm­ing­ham Air­port. We hope this will be the first of many more to come”. Richard Gill, act­ing com­mer­cial di­rec­tor at Birm­ing­ham Air­port, added: “We’re de­lighted to be wel­com­ing M& S Food to Go here at Birm­ing­ham Air­port. It’s a great ad­di­tion to our al­ready ex­cel­lent of­fer­ing and we have no doubt the M& S will de­liver a great cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence for the 13 mil­lion pas­sen­gers we wel­come through our doors ev­ery year.”

In a sep­a­rate an­nounce­ment, the air­port has un­veiled its sec­ond No1 Lounges fol­low­ing the launch of its first at Birm­ing­ham Air­port in 2012.

The new lounge will open un­der the firm’s ‘ Clu­b­rooms’ brand and is de­signed in the style of a mod­ern mem­bers’ club with ta­ble ser­vice and à la carte din­ing.

Phil Cameron, founder and chief ex­ec­u­tive of No1 Lounges, said: “We are ab­so­lutely de­lighted to be open­ing our sec­ond lounge at Birm­ing­ham Air­port.”
