Cafe opens in airport departure lounge

Early-morning passengers can now buy their fresh-brewed coffee, breakfast sandwiches, pastries and wraps after clearing passenger screening at the Prince George Airport.

BG Urban Café opened its doors in the departure lounge on Wednesday morning. The café currently serves coffee, juices and grab and go meals, and is in the process of acquiring a liquor license.

"This is one more way the Prince George Airport is meeting our passengers' needs and responding to the feedback we receive from our airport service quality surveys." Prince George Airport Authority CEO John Gibson said.

The project got underway in March with a reconfiguration of vending machines, making way for the restaurant construction. A tenant lounge was converted into the café's service area, while part of the departure lounge has now been converted to bar height counters with USB and electrical plugs for passengers' convenience.

"We are excited to this joint adventure with Prince George Airport. It has been a long time coming and we are looking forward to serving customers in the new cafe," said Christina Antrobus, local manager for Compass Group Canada Ltd. "As soon as we opened the doors, passengers were excited to come in for coffee and breakfast."

The BG Urban Grill in the main area of the airport remains open.
