Highways

Areas is the leading operator in Spanish highway travel plazas.

A unique experience

Airea makes filling your tank and having a break a special and unique experience that is different and pleasant, from when you enter the travel plaza to when you get back on the road.

Airea: the travel plazas of the future

Airea is the new brand with which Areas is transforming customer service at highway and roadside travel plazas. The idea is to offer new content and services to make travelers’ breaks more pleasant and welcoming.

Enhanced user experience is the main feature of these travel plazas, delivered through the redesign, improvement, and modernization of these spaces, including value-added services such as free wifi, a new food offering with high-quality, freshly made products, revamped children’s areas, latest-generation vending machines, and a new concept in restrooms. 

COMO: a new self-service concept

COMO is the latest brand developed by Areas to make its debut at the revamped La Jonquera travel plaza. COMO is characterized by its versatility and makes a wide range of delicious possibilities available for the most demanding palates. From freshly made gourmet baguettes on different types of artisan bread to exquisite regional dishes such as the traditional escudella catalana stew. Health-conscious travelers can enjoy a carefully chosen selection of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices, and various different salads.

The new outlet is distinguished by its stylish, modern look, with a thoroughly contemporary decor that shatters preconceived notions of traditional travel plazas. Covering an area of 538 sq ft and with seating for 60 diners, COMO offers maximum comfort, speed, and an extensive range of products and dishes featuring Mediterranean ingredients and recipes to cater for all tastes, any time of the day.

Deli Corner: latest-generation vending machines

Deli Corner is a new area with latest-generation vending machines that Areas has developed to complement its food and beverage and retail offering at travel plazas. It has the most modern machines equipped with the latest technology (a digital screen to select products and the possibility of paying with a credit card) and features an extensive range of brands and products from reference providers. Customers can purchase products from leading cold drinks brands (soft drinks, water, etc.) and hot drinks (tea, coffee), as well as a varied offer of food products.

Targeted at travelers who need to make a quick purchase before heading back to the road, it also boasts a common area with tables to eat at.  This delivers improved customer satisfaction and maximizes the vending machine potential at our outlets.
