Aberdeen International Airport in Scotland has partnered with local award-winning chef Craig Wilson (left), proprietor of Eat on the Green in Ellon, to create a locally inspired menu for the airport’s new Northern Lights executive lounge.
The lounge, which is due to open to passengers on July 1, 2017, forms part of the first phase of the airport’s ongoing transformation project. The locally inspired lounge will feature a whisky wall and craft beers, as well as panoramic views of the runway.
Jon Matthews, head of finance and commercial at Aberdeen Airport, said, “The Northern Lights lounge will set a new benchmark for excellence in quality and service for airport facilities. We are extremely proud of being able to deliver this key milestone as part of our overall terminal transformation project, importantly working with local partners such as Craig Wilson to promote the very best of Aberdeen and the Shire.”
Craig Wilson, widely known as the Kilted Chef, has cooked for many high profile British celebrities including Sir Sean Connery, Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Patrick Stewart. Craig was also selected by VisitScotland to travel to New York as part of Scotland Week.
The airport saw their new international arrivals hall open to passengers at the end of May and the launch of the new executive lounge in July will mark the next milestone in the terminal’s transformation progress.
