DENMARK. Pret A Manger is set to open first shops in Scandinavia at Copenhagen Airport in partnership with HMSHost International.

The first shop will open on 7 February in the main Terminal 2 check-in area, offering seating for 160 customers. A second shop will open on 8 February by the Metro station in Terminal 3.

Both stores will feature Pret A Manger’s handmade, natural food and organic coffee prepared onsite daily. The menu includes sandwiches, salads, wraps, baguettes, hot food, yoghurt and fruit pots, sweet treats, juices, smoothies and organic hot drinks.

Popular items include the Posh Cheddar & Pickle Baguette, Classic Super Club Sandwich, Swedish Meatball Hot Wrap and Wild Crayfish & Avocado Salad and a range of vegetarian food.

Pret A Manger Director of Partnerships Michael Haley said: “Finding a quick, fresh and nutritious meal while travelling can often be difficult, and we’re pleased we can now play a part in making it even easier for passengers travelling through Copenhagen Airport.

“Opening for the first time in Scandinavia is an exciting move for us and it gives us a great opportunity to introduce delicious Danish bacon into some of our recipes for the first time.”
