Malaysia Airports has reopened Food Garden at Level 2, KLIA
Malaysia Airports is taking to the skies again with the easing of travel borders. As such, KL International Airport has recently reopened its Food Garden at Level 2 of the airport after undergoing a major uplift and facility upgrade.
The upgraded Food Garden was part of Malaysia Airports’ commercial reset strategy which aimed to transform its airports into a one-stop destination for F&B, shopping, and lifestyle. The all-new KLIA Food Garden promises an exciting instaworthy dining experience featuring a one-of-a-kind electronic ‘Ceiling Visualisation’ that spectacularly showcases the splendid nature in 2D which is perfect for an Instagram moment.
Operated by Malaysia Airports (Niaga) Sdn Bhd, also known as Eraman, diners can look forward to the open kitchen and scenic tropical garden concept as well as elevated services such as e-wallet payment system among others, to delight passengers travelling in the new norm.
Malaysia Airports Managing Director Dato' Iskandar Mizal Mahmood said, “We are pleased to reopen the KLIA Food Garden which will feature a diverse mix of local and international cuisines in line with our aim to improve the retailers’ profile and brand variety offered at our airports. Apart from that, the focus on digitalisation adds more convenience and efficiency through automated services such as e-wallet payment gateways, while at the same time ensuring safety by reducing physical contact with the F&B operators.”
At the new Food Garden, customers will enjoy a variety of F&B brands such as Starbucks, O'Briens, PastaMania, I Love Yoo and, among others. The KLIA Food Garden combines contemporary architecture and design that reflect Malaysia’s unique cultural elements and comfortable dining ambience.
Occupying a floor area of 2,000 square metres, KLIA Food Garden can cater up to 450 diners at one time. However, with the current COVID-19 dining SOPs in place, it can cater up to 130 diners with strict health and safety practices such as only serving diners that are fully vaccinated, physical distancing, temperature screening, and mandatory usage of face masks except when eating. The Food Garden will house 14 outlets by Q2 2022.
Eraman will also be introducing various innovative initiatives at its F&B outlets such as self-ordering kiosks, as well as home and office delivery. One already implemented initiative was the contactless ordering via QR code by its F&B outlet, Marrybrown. As one of the Group's subsidiaries, this is part of Eraman’s efforts to provide a digitally-driven dining experience that aims to promote a convenient and safe experience for all airport guests.
Passengers travelling through KLIA must pay a visit to the new Food Garden to indulge in the array of food available. Malaysia Airports is happy to welcome travellers again.
