Fried chicken restaurant chain Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has opened its first restaurant within a UK airport.
The fast-food brand launched in Manchester Airport's Terminal Three departure lounge, offering food from 4am until the final departure.
Manchester Airport's KFC will also serve a breakfast menu until 10am, including the Chicken AM burger - an original recipe chicken fillet, a free-range egg, bacon and cheese, topped with a hash brown.
Stephen Turner, commercial director at Manchester Airport, said: "We are delighted to launch the first ever KFC airside at a UK airport and I am sure the outlet will be incredibly popular with our passengers in Terminal Three. The well-known iconic brand will offer passengers something different, and complements the other food and beverage offering within the terminal."
Walter Seib, CEO of HMSHost International said: "This agreement with KFC marks a significant milestone in our strategy to increase our footprint in the rapidly expanding and dynamic UK marketplace through a strong international brand. We're delighted to open this popular concept as part of the ongoing development of Terminal Three."
