San Diego International Airport opens 16 new restaurants and shops
Sixteen new restaurants and shops have opened at San Diego International Airport (SDIA) over the past several months, bringing more and higher quality dining and shopping options to travelers. The openings are part of the airport’s Concession Development Program, which is completely revamping shopping and dining throughout all of the airport’s terminals, increasing the variety of food, beverage and retail offerings and representing the best local, regional, national and international concepts.
The newly-opened restaurants and shops include 10News, Ciao Gourmet Market (two locations), Craft Brews on 30th Street, Ryan Bros. Coffee, Starbucks, Stellar News Express and Where Traveler in Terminal 1; Best Buy (two Express locations), CNBC News San Diego, Gaslamp MarketPlace, Jer’s Chocolates, U.S. News & World Report and Duty Free Americas in Terminal 2; and San Diego Bay News and Café (featuring Caffé Calabria coffee) in the Commuter Terminal.
A major aim of the Concession Development Program is to create a sense of place that is uniquely “San Diego.” As a result of these new offerings, San Diegans flying out of SDIA can enjoy local favorites and those traveling to the area can experience the region’s restaurants and retailers the moment they step off the plane.
“We’re pleased to enhance the traveler’s experience at San Diego International Airport by providing a wide range of new dining and shopping options,” said Thella F. Bowens, President/CEO of the Airport Authority. “Customer satisfaction is a high priority, and these new restaurants and shops will make the traveler’s time at the airport more pleasant and enjoyable.”
