Sodexo‘s hospitality and events brand Sodexo Live! is improving its offering across eight British Airways lounges at US airports under an expanded partnership with the airline.
The lounges are located at San Francisco (SFO) Terminal A, Chicago O’Hare (ORD) Terminal 5, Philadelphia (PHL) Concourse A West, Washington Dulles (IAD) Concourse B, Baltimore/Washington (BWI) Terminal E, Seattle-Tacoma (SEA) S Concourse, Newark Liberty (EWR) Terminal B and Boston Logan (BOS) Terminal E.
Sodexo Live! plans to introduce new food and drinks menus in the coming months as part of the extended alliance.
Several ‘British favourites’ will be added to the menus of each lounge. Some of these items include a British afternoon tea that features Twinings tea.
Pre-flight options will also include more nutritious alternatives to traditional airport fare.
Sodexo plans to include city-specific epicurean delights and each lounge with a bespoke setting will offer area-influenced dishes that have been locally sourced.
The company will also renew its focus on traditional snack items to reflect British and Indian influences.
Items such as substantial salads and other cold offerings will focus on seasonality.
Sodexo Live! airport lounges chief operating officer Julieta Gutierrez said: “We are pleased to partner with British Airways, an airline that is truly guest-centric and encourages our culinarians to be bold and creative with their menu design.”
British Airways ground experience head Matt Callard said: “We want to continue to evolve and improve the premium experience for customers flying to and from the US, so we are excited to be reimagining the dining experience in eight American gateways.
“We are confident that our customers will really enjoy new, unique dishes which reflect local cuisine and provenance.”
