New cafe for the airport

A new coffee shop is to be opened at Newcastle Airport.

Catering firm SSP UK is launching Caffè Ritazza as part of the redevelopment of landside facilities at the airport, near Ponteland.

Airport Chief Executive David Laws said: “Having made a significant investment in our departure lounge over the last 12 months, we’re delighted to introduce Caffè Ritazza, accessible to all passengers and visitors on our check-in concourse. Caffè Ritazza has traded successfully in our departure lounge for a number of years, and with a versatile product range.”
