Edmonton Airport welcomes local flavours

Edmonton International Airport (EIA) will welcome two new locally owned restaurants to the expanded Domestic/International passenger lounge in September 2012 when the EIA Expansion project officially opens.

Italian restaurant Caffè Sorrentino will offer passengers a range of signature pastas, panini, soups, salads, pastries, gelato and premium Italian espresso while the Belgian Beer Café will provide traditional European cuisine and beverages.

“Our customers are continually asking for more dining choices, and we are acting on that,” said Myron Keehn, EIA vice president of commercial development. “These are both locally-owned, family restaurants, with the international flavour travellers expect from an airport.”

“As a locally owned business we are thrilled and honoured to have been given the opportunity by the EIA to showcase our franchise concept – Caffè Sorrentino, Italian Coffee Bar,” commented Carmelo Rago, Caffè Sorrentino President. “Being a part of this beautiful, modern and much needed facility is exciting to say the least. We look forward to serving our valued patrons of over 30 years as well as welcoming all visitors in true Edmonton style!”

"Opening a new restaurant is always cause for celebration, but this one is particularly significant and special," added Gerry Inglis, CEO and President of Speedy Creek, which will operate the Belgian Beer Café "We are very fortunate to be partnering with a leader in airport excellence and believe this milestone demonstrates EIA's commitment to develop and bring authentic flavours to all EIA travellers. It is an exciting opportunity and we are delighted to be opening the first Canadian Belgian Beer Café, at EIA."

Other recent additions to EIA include Metalsmiths Sterling and Coney Island Candy, with Cookies by George opening later this summer. A total of 34 new shops and services will be serving travellers in EIA by the end of 2012. Other new areas of EIA still to open include a Central Tower (housing NAV Canada air-traffic control and administrative offices in December 2012), and a 210 room Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, (developed by Platinum Investments Ltd.) connected to EIA in 2013.
