BAA chief welcomes Geronimo at Heathrow – 30/03/05

UK. BAA Retail has signed a deal with leading London pub group, Geronimo Inns, which currently operates 14 award winning and Michelin-rated pubs across the capital.

The prime 381sq m site is a unique lifestyle food focused pub, located between WH Smith and Boots, in the main thoroughfare of terminal one’s redeveloped and expanded retail space. This will be opened in May 2005.

The Geronimo airport site will be aptly named The Tin Goose after the Ford Motor Company’s first all metal aeroplane built in 1927. The gastro pub will be themed around retro travel of the 1930s and 40s.

Colin Hargrave, Managing Director, UK Airport Retail said: “We are proud to welcome a Geronimo Inn to Heathrow Airport. The catering offer is an absolutely vital element of the whole airport experience – over 90% of our travellers use these services and facilities – and we’ve invested strongly over the past few years to develop new concepts and introduce new brands to further strengthen that experience.”

The Tin Goose joins a host of other well-known brands that offer quality and value for money food & beverage outlets at the airport: In total over 130 bars, restaurants, cafes and coffee houses throughout BAA’s seven UK airports.
