Sydney Airport revamps food offer

sydney, airport, cafe, movida, barSydney Domestic Airport is seeking expressions of interest from retailers for its revitalised T2 food and beverage precinct.

This is the first time in more than five years the T2 dining precinct has invited expressions of interest from potential retailers.

Due to rollout later this year, the newly designed food and beverage space will accommodate a greater number of passengers with expanded seating areas, and offer a new array of food choices including fast and fresh, gourmet, and street food.

Glyn Williams, GM Sydney Airport, said the impetus for the redevelopment was Sydney Airport’s focus on improving the passenger experience.

“With annual passenger growth rates averaging 4.1 per cent over the past five years, T2 is Australia’s busiest airport terminal and opportunities like this don’t come along often. We’re looking for passionate, on trend and dynamic players to come and make their mark in an incredibly busy and unique environment,” Williams said.

“The T2 dining precinct is just one part of a wider redevelopment plan for Sydney Airport in 2015 and 2016. We have significant works underway at our T1 International terminal, which together with T2 will ensure Sydney Airport has one of the strongest retail product offerings in the world.

“We’re going to give passengers a fantastic dining environment in T2, with an outstanding selection of retailers in a new and improved setting. We’re looking forward to seeing exceptional creativity through this process.”

Sydney Airport serves more than 38 million passengers a year and connects Sydney to a network of close to 90 international, domestic, and regional destinations.

It contributes $27.6 billion in economic activity a year, equivalent to six per cent of the NSW economy, while $64.7 billion of freight is moved through the airport each year.
