Costa is to invest close to £1m opening a new store within Heathrow’s Terminal 2: The Queens Terminal next June.

The 3,000 sq ft store located in international departures will feature a unique store design for the Costa estate

The counter and service points form a central focal point and have been designed “to maximise efficiency and speed of service”. A dedicated iPad station will be included for customer use to check emails, play games and browse the web ahead of their flights.

James Hamilton, head of UK acquisitions & estates at Costa, said: “We are very excited to be bringing a bespoke store design to Terminal 2. Airport customers are looking for convenience; great coffee and food; and a quick service. By working closely with the Heathrow team we believe that the new store layout will clearly reflect our travelling customer’s needs whilst creating a sleek, modern feel.”

Muriel Zingraff, Heathrow’s retail director, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Costa on delivering a new innovative store design for the new Terminal 2. The UKs favourite coffee brand already has nine other outlets within Heathrow and has proven to be very popular amongst our travellers from all over the globe.”
