Meiko UK Partner Distributor Court Catering Equipment has installed a Meiko K200 VP rack transport dishwasher capable of processing up to 210 racks/hr at Southend Airport.
Southend expects to carry two million passengers by 2015, some five years earlier than originally planned, said Court Catering Equipment’s Design and Projects Director Andy Fitzwater.
“We chose the Meiko K200 VP because it will keep pace with the growing passenger traffic through the airport. It is backed up by a Meiko DV80.2GiO machine installed in the bar area which handles the glassware.”
Southend is the highest ranked airport for customer satisfaction according to Which? magazine. The Essex airport achieved a customer satisfaction score of 84% in a survey of more than 11,000 people, who praised the speedy check-in and arrivals process.
Acquired by Stobart Group in 2008, Southend opened Laker's Bar & Restaurant in April. Open daily from 4.30am until the departure of the final flight of the day, the 180-seat restaurant opening created 25 new jobs.
