The most important conflicts will be with two popular fast food chains and a yet to be announced, food grill.
The hegemony of McDonald’s, known for its affordable prices and its privileged location in Terminal A, will be in conflict with the arrival of Burger King, its biggest competitor in the country.
The chain of fast food controlled in Argentina by the Asea group will open its first place at Ezeiza airport. It will be located at level 1, very close to a Starbucks, from the same group. At that level, accessible only to those who embark, there is also a local McDonalds, as explained by the manager of the airport Daniel Ketchibachian. Starbucks will have three points of sale.
The area of grills debut in this airport AA2000 with two major novelties. A local de famous restaurant La Cabrera called ‘ Al Paso ‘will be installed, as a kind of express grill for foreign tourists looking to experience Argentine meat.
The arrival of Brazilians (main tourist group coming to Argentina) who know not only the local steak but they are often clients of the La Cabrera from previous trips.
Additionally is the Outback, which will open in May, a ‘ steakhouse ‘ of the North American style with an Australian inspiration and star dishes such as Ribbs or filet mignon. This chain is located in shopping malls and Brazilian airports, besides being present in 23 countries with 1000 locations.
The new gastronomic offer also adds Le Pain Quotidien, Brioche doree and Nucha. And there is also the debut of a brewery called Beer Corner and a Wine bar.
All the locals have projected their opening between this month and May. The investments made are calculated in about AR 4,000 per square metre.
They complete the offer that will be available this year, the already traditional Florida Garden, Hard Rock Café, Havanna, Natural Market, and the local low cost: the Authentic Pantry and the Patio Buffet.
The bars and restaurants with low prices were included by a policy adopted by AA2000 before the complaints of users about the high values that were paid within the terminal, which came to triple those of any avenue of Buenos Aires.
Today, by contract, no local can charge more than the roof value that charges for the same product in its stores in the shopping malls. For those who are not a chain, the maximum possible value to collect is taken from a calculation made between five bars or restaurants of the same characteristics.
To get economic prices in addition, 10 vending machines will be added in each area. Drinks and snacks can be purchased from AR 20.
Ezeiza airport is in the midst of this enlargement work. Today it receives 10 million passengers and 70,000 flights per year. The new 39,800 m2 starting Terminal is being built, with 138 new check in positions and 228 new auto parks. Plus there will be new multilevel parking for 1835 vehicles.
