The UK’s first airside airport KFC outlet has opened at Manchester’s Terminal 3.
The move, in cooperation with HMSHost International, has brought the famous ‘finger lickin’ chicken’ brand to T3’s departures lounge. The outlet will be open from 4am until the last flight has departed and will create 50 new jobs for local people.
Walter Seib, CEO of HMSHost International commented: “This agreement with KFC marks a significant milestone in our strategy to increase our footprint in the rapidly expanding and dynamic UK marketplace through a strong international brand.
“We’re delighted to open this popular concept as part of the ongoing development of Terminal Three.”
Stephen Turner, Commercial Director at Manchester Airport, added: “We are delighted to launch the first ever KFC airside at a UK airport and I am sure the outlet will be incredibly popular with our passengers in Terminal Three. The well-known iconic brand will offer passengers something different, and complements the other food and beverage offering within the terminal.”
Manchester’s Terminal 3 handled more than 8.5 million passengers last year.
