Burger King has opened its first site in a Belgian airport at Brussels South Charleroi Airport, with SSP.

It is located airside on the mezzanine level of the Espace Food Court, and, spanning 80 sq. meters, has more 250 seats.

Kevin Derycke, chief executive of Burger Brands Belgium, said: “Opening a restaurant in the heart of an airport has always been a goal with special significance for the Burger King brand.”

Gérard d’Onofrio, managing director of SSP France and Benelux, said: “We are delighted to join forces with Burger Brands Belgium and Brussels South Charleroi Airport to launch this concept. We look forward to introducing Burger King to airport travellers in Belgium.”
