SSP launches Cabin bar at Newcastle airport

Travel concessions business SSP has opened a new bar called Cabin at Newcastle International Airport.

The new operation has launched in partnership with Champagne Lanson, beer brand Peroni and wine merchant Corney & Barrow.

A menu of small plates such as salted cod croquettes and larger dishes of mezze, charcuterie from local farm Dropswell and cheeses from specialist retailer Pong is available.

Cabin's design features an island bar and views across the runway.

Commenting on the new opening, Simon Smith, chief executive UK & Ireland at SSP said: "Cabin is a brand that works well at any travel location looking to offer customers the chance to relax and watch the world go by in an environment that allows them a moment's escape from the stress of modern life.

"Sales have risen steadily at London Waterloo, where the brand was launched in 2012. Today the Waterloo bar is a popular choice for a pre-theatre dinner or a business lunch as well as with commuters. We expect Cabin to be equally well received by passengers at Newcastle and at Stansted, where the third outlet will open in the Spring."
