Edinburgh Airport is the second Starbucks store in the UK to offer this range to customers, following a successful launch at Stansted Airport earlier this year.

The new store is part of Edinburgh Airport’s £150m five-year development programme which has seen huge investments in retail and food and beverage offerings in the terminal.

Up to 20 new team members will be working at the new store following several weeks of intensive training.

John Watson, Chief Commercial Officer at Edinburgh Airport, said it was “another example of our commitment to providing customers with the very best choice of where to eat and drink in the airport”.

Ian Cranna, for Starbucks, said: “Over 10 million people passed through Edinburgh Airport last year and we’re really looking forward to offering these travellers this new range.”
