Québec City, November 4, 2019 - Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) is pleased to announce the official opening of an A&W restaurant in its food court. This is the first in the chain to open at an airport in Québec. Travellers from here and abroad will now be able to enjoy the Canadian banner’s large menu, which features burgers and all-day breakfasts.
“YQB’s commercial offer has significantly improved since the opening of the new terminal building. More and more, it’s reflecting current airport trends. Passengers now have access to a range of choices that includes both local flavours and international favourites,” said Stéphane Poirier, President and CEO of YQB. “Our passengers have asked us for access to diversified and high-quality fast food services before their flights. We are proud to meet their needs and hope they will appreciate this addition,” he finished.
“A&W is one of the strongest food brands in Canada, so we are excited and proud to be inaugurating the first A&W at a Québec airport. Not only are we bringing our entire burger family to YQB, we’re also bringing our chain’s essentials, like our all-day breakfasts. We are convinced that travellers will enjoy the wide range of products we have to offer. After several months of planning and construction, we’re pleased to finally be able to welcome them,” stated Charlotte Legault, the A&W franchise owner.
Located near gate 30 and the children’s play area, the A&W complements the range of restaurants in the secure area, which also includes the Starbucks café, the Pidz restaurant and the Origine sandwich bar.
