Molson Pub cracks a cold one at EIA
Full-service bar & restaurant now open in US Passenger
Lounge

(October 6, 2009) Edmonton, Alta.—Edmonton International Airport
(EIA) is pleased to welcome another full-service bar and restaurant
to the growing array of food and beverage options available to
airport customers. EIA passengers can now enjoy the atmosphere and
menu of Molson Pub, opening today in the US Passenger Lounge.

“Molson Pub is a great addition to the changing face of the US
Passenger Lounge,” says Reg Milley, EIA President and CEO. “With
the recent opening of the temporary Terminal Express, which helps
pave the way towards Expansion 2012, maintaining our customer
service standards is very important. Molson Pub’s outstanding
food and beverage offerings are part of our overall plan to improve
the passenger experience at EIA.”

In addition to pub-style food, Molson Pub serves breakfast, salads
and entrees along with a “grab and go†offering. Opening daily
at 5 a.m. and closing after the last flight of the day, the pub
seats 51 and is managed by HMS Host.

The next phase of EIA’s concessions program in the US Passenger
Lounge will be the removal of the Toast outlet, which begins today.
The space will be renovated and returned for additional departure
lounge seating. This process will be fast tracked to ensure the
disruption to passengers is limited.

EIA now has scheduled service to 11 US non-stop destinations:
Chicago, Denver, Houston (starting Nov. 1), Las Vegas, Los Angeles,
Minneapolis, Palm Springs, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, San Francisco,
Seattle and WestJet just announced seasonal service to Maui for
spring 2010. From 2002 to 2008, EIA’s US passenger traffic has
grown by 140 per cent making it one of the airport’s
fastest-growing market segments. For more information, visit www.flyeia.com/USA.
