Areas touches down in Ibiza’s airport with a revamped, trend-setting image and culinary offer
The company has been present at Ibiza Airport, one of the busiest in passenger traffic in Spain, since 2004. Over these 12 years and thanks to its know-how and experience, Areas has pioneered concepts and ranges to adapt to new customer demand (66% international travelers) and seasonal factors (77% of passengers visit the island between May and September), with ranges adjusted to each passenger type.
The Areas offering brings local food concepts that are favorites in the city center to Ibiza’s airport for the first time with products such as the pintxos (morsels of food on skewers) and tapas from Can Terra and the pastries from La Mediterránea, and combines them with own formulas proving popular at benchmark airports such as Adolfo Suárez Madrid Barajas with Deli & Cia and Kirei, as well as international renowned brands like Paul and Rossosapore.
“This revamp shores up Areas’ commitment to Ibiza Airport and responds to the company’s decision to drive quality concepts and offer the best experience to our clients in all the airports where it operates,” said Oscar Vela, Areas CEO for Spain, Portugal and Latin America. “It is a balanced, quality offering that blends innovative concepts, tailored to travelers and prevailing in large cities, and recognized by an international clientele as well as the people from Ibiza,” he added.

The trend-setting brand features a range tailored to travelers with little time who don’t want to give up healthy eating. Its welcoming and fresh atmosphere in a 1,064 sq ft space makes it the ideal place for every kind of traveler.
