Stansteds on top of the World
High Street brands, Wetherspoon and Pret a Manger are more successful at Stansted than anywhere else, while Burger Kings new arrivals restaurant is its busiest airport outlet.Pret a Manger, which opened at Stansted in 2003, regularly outsells all of its other stores, making it the number on e Pret in Europe. J D Wetherspoon opened The Windmill pub, airside at Stansted in 2003 and constantly outperforms the company's other 733 pubs across the UK. And it's not just alcohol that boosts the record sales. Last month Stansted food sales were the highest of any of its airport pubs.
Since opening up in the new terminal arrivals area in November, Burger King has rocketed into the company's record books, serving 13,000 customers a week - more than any of its other airport outlets. “Passengers recognise and trust these brands, so it's no surprise that they flock to use them in the airport,” said John English, Stansted's Head of Retail. “We're pleased that the companies are doing so well at Stansted and look forward to welcoming other internationally famous brands to the airport.”
