SSP and London Stansted Airport open a new way to fly and drive-thru


SSP has partnered with London Stansted Airport to open its first Burger King drive-thru in the country.

The company already operates two Burger King restaurants at Stansted. The new drive-thru is located on Thremhall Avenue, the main road approaching the terminal, making it convenient for all customers whether arriving or departing the airport, or even those who live locally.

Cathy Granby, Business Development Director of SSP UK & Ireland, said: “We know how well-loved Burger King is and it’s one of our core franchise brands. We’re delighted to be expanding this relationship and hope this will be the first drive-thru of many. I’ve no doubt it will be hugely successful, not only with the travelling public but with customers who live and work near the airport too.”

In addition to the drive-thru window, the restaurant also seats 86 dine-in customers and will be open seven days a week.

Stephen Martin, London Stansted’s Retail Director, said: “We are delighted to have teamed up with SSP to bring the first Burger King drive-thru restaurant to London Stansted. Our departure lounge is already home to SSP’s award winning Burger King restaurant, and this offers an excellent addition to the broad selection of food and beverage outlets available across the airport site. This retail operation creates different needs to the terminal and SSP have addressed those well.”

Alasdair Murdoch, CEO of Burger King® UK, commented: “It’s great to see Burger King® UK’s longstanding partnership with SSP continue to flourish, and we can’t wait to play an even bigger role in the experience our customers have at Stansted. Whether they’re dropping friends or family off at the terminal, in need of a satisfying meal to round off their holiday or living and working in the local area – it’s going to be even easier to pick up a Flame-Grilled Whopper® or Chicken Royale with our new Drive Thru restaurant.”
