SUBWAY OPENS NEW SANDWICH KIOSK FOR AIRPORT PASSENGERS
(Binghamton, NY) Subway restaurants has been providing BGM travelers with its healthy version of quick meals for over ten years. Recently airport officials worked with Subway Development of CNY to improve this service by providing the ability to purchase these same quality products in the departure lounge. Now hungry passengers can grab a bite to eat in both the prescreening area and in the boarding area after they have cleared the security screening process, something BGM passengers have voiced a desire for.
This enhanced service was accomplished with the installation of a Subway sandwich kiosk. Patrons can get most items available in the Subway restaurant at the kiosk including all the popular subway sandwiches, chips and beverages, breakfast sandwiches, pastries and coffee are available for those early morning departures.
“The kiosk is a direct result of responding to the requests of our customers,” said Barbara J. Fiala, Broome County Executive “We are very pleased with Subway’s enthusiasm in bringing this amenity to our facility.”
In addition to the new kiosk, full service restaurant, lounge and gift shop services will continue in the Gateway Cafe’ at the Greater Binghamton Airport which has been remodeled with the new Subway Tuscan look. “The new decor certainly gives a fresh look to this popular venue,” said David J. Lebous, President of Subway Development of CNY. The Tuscan theme is consistent with Subway’s new branding and is found in other newer Subway locations.
“Subway products have always been a perfect fit for our BGM passengers,” said Carl R. Beardsley, Jr., Broome County Commissioner of Aviation. “They provide a healthy quick meal that can be enjoyed while people wait for their flight, or they can take it with them for an in-flight meal.”
The new sandwich kiosk is open in the departure area of the airport from 5:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. which is typically peak travel times. Kiosk hours may be expanded in the future based on demand. Subway provides food service daily from 5:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Members of the Media are welcome to visit the Greater Binghamton Airport on Wednesday March 23, at 2:00 p.m. to meet with airport and subway representatives and to get photo or video of the new Subway facilities.
