Work is underway on improvements to Bristol Airport’s bars and restaurants as part of a project to improve ambience, accessibility and comfort for passengers. Over £150,000 will be invested by Food Travel Experts, SSP, ahead of what is expected to be another busy summer season. The terminal’s table service restaurant, Dexters, will be first to undergo a makeover, with new furniture and lighting being introduced to create a more relaxed atmosphere. An updated system will also make it easier for customers to calculate costs when choosing from the menu, and a new ten minute service guarantee on selected items will provide peace of mind for those in a hurry. Bar Zero9, the airport’s largest bar, will also see improvements aimed at delivering better service to the thousands of customers it hosts every day. Distinct eating and drinking zones will be introduced to create a welcoming environment for large groups and lone travellers alike, while a ‘fan zone’ will be equipped with new plasma screens for use during major televised sporting events. Reserved areas and host service can be booked in advance. Work will also take place in the popular Burger King in departures, where the brand’s new look will be introduced along with new seating. This will entail a short closure of a week, which will be scheduled between the busy Easter and summer holiday periods. The Seafood Bar will also be rebranded as a Wine & Deli Bar, widening the menu to include regionally sourced food such as Wiltshire ham, Somerset cheeses and locally caught fish, and introducing a new concept in ‘wine flights’ – small samplers of three different wines. Olly Swayne, SSP Operations Manager at Bristol Airport, said: “This work represents a significant investment in food and drink facilities at Bristol Airport and ensures that restaurants and bars adapt to meet the changing needs of travellers, allowing them to eat, drink and relax before they fly.” Tom Hack, Retail Manager at Bristol Airport, said: “Families heading off on holiday this summer will be able to enjoy a wider range of food and drink options when waiting to board their flights. Business travellers will also benefit from a more comfortable environment in which to work and relax.”
