Costa Coffee and Burger King: Two international stars in the arrival hall

Costa Coffee is famous for its “Signature Blend” coffee. The Costa brothers needed all of 112 attempts to perfect this blend. The brand was founded in London in the year 1971 by the Italian brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa. In the meantime, Costa Coffee has expanded to 41 countries across the globe. The international franchise chain Burger King also started operating in the arrival hall today in addition to its restaurant in Terminal 1. The two international food and beverage premises are open daily i.e., Costa Coffee from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Burger King from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Both restaurants are operated by Lagardère Travel Retail Austria.
