This new unit at Birmingham Airport is a wonderful next step as we expand our presence at the airport, delivering F&B options that truly enhance the airport experience for travellers.”
Richard Gill, Commercial Director of Birmingham Airport commenting on the forthcoming opening said: “It is fantastic to see Starbucks®, a world recognisable brand, return to Birmingham Airport.
