“That’s why we are offering a unique concept airside at Düsseldorf Airport, with a delicious range of products and a warm service that invites travellers to make the most of the time before their flight.”
A bespoke menu for travellers
The extended product range goes beyond classic French snacks such as croissants, baguettes, and tartelettes, to offer a selection tailored to the needs of air travellers.
There’s a variety of tarte flambée, as well as a bar serving wine, beer and soft drinks.
“The team at Düsseldorf Airport is thrilled about the opening of the first airside Le Crobag and the upcoming shops in the new year,” said Pia Klauck, Head of Commercial Operations at Flughafen Düsseldorf GmbH.
“The tailored concepts designed specifically for our airport are set to enhance travellers’ experiences during their visit.
