BG Urban Café opens in Departure Lounge

Early morning passengers can now buy their fresh-brewed coffee, breakfast sandwiches, pastries and wraps after clearing passenger screening at the Prince George Airport. This morning, BG Urban Café, located in the Departure Lounge, opened its doors. The newly-installed café currently serves coffee, juices and grab and go meals, and is in the process of acquiring a liquor license.

“This is one more way the Prince George Airport is meeting our passengers’ needs and responding to the feedback we receive from our Airport Service Quality surveys.” said John Gibson, president and CEO.

Chris Antrobus, local manager for Compass Group Canada Ltd., says, “We are excited to this joint adventure with Prince George Airport. It has been a long time coming and we are looking forward to serving customers in the new cafe. As soon as we opened the doors, passengers were excited to come in for coffee and breakfast!”

The project got underway in March 2019, with the reconfiguration of vending machines, making way for the restaurant construction. A tenant lounge was converted into the café’s service area, while part of the departure lounge has now been converted to bar height counters with USB and electrical plugs for passengers’ convenience.

The existing BC Urban Grill, located in the non-secure area of the airport, opened in April 2012.

An official Grand Opening will be planned for August.
