Paradies Lagardère has opened a new food and beverage outlet, Aletitude, at Asheville Regional Airport (AVL). The location includes a bar serving a selection of on-tap and bottled beer and wine, and also offers grab-and-go salads and sandwiches.
Aletitude is located at the recently opened temporary gate area, which is a modular building adjacent to the south end of the terminal. The passenger seating area accommodates 240+ passengers and serves three boarding gates. The bar has a seating area where passengers can enjoy their food and drinks while they wait for their flights to board.
This temporary gate area is now open so the airport can move forward with the largest infrastructure improvement project ever undertaken at AVL, slated to officially start this August.
“As we embark on the terminal expansion project, our goal is to make sure our passengers are comfortable during the process,” said Lew Bleiweis, Greater Asheville Regional Airport (GARAA) president and CEO. “Paradies Lagardère has operated the Blue Ridge Tavern since 2011, and Cinnabon and Auntie Anne’s since 2019. We are pleased to welcome their addition of Aletitude to the food and beverage offerings at AVL, which is a great way to provide some customer conveniences and comfort during our construction project.”
