Autopistas and Areas have finished the final phase of the highway travel plaza renovation plan, which involves reforming a total of 17 facilities on the AP-7, AP-2 and AP-68. This project aims to transform the concept of client service through redesigning, improving and modernizing these spaces, including value-added services such as free wifi, new food options, children’s areas, latest-generation vending machines, and a new concept in restrooms, in general, offering a new image and enhanced user experience.
The travel plaza renewal project was started in 2011 with the remodeling of the plazas on the AP-68 (Zaragoza-Bilbao). In Catalonia, the new plazas in Empordà, Montseny, La Jonquera, Montcada, La Selva -on the AP-7-, and Lleida-on the AP-2- have been put in place, while in Aragon, the Monegros plaza -also on the AP-2- has been renovated. The plan, in its entirety, represents an investment of 12.78 million Euros from Areas.
Airea is a new concept in travel plazas which provides a break during a trip and offers customers a new experience. It boasts a series of features in a welcoming setting that will make family trips a lot more enjoyable.
Airea's mixed concept integrates our two core business models (catering and retail) in a single commercial space operated by the same team of professionals.
The improvement and modernization of these spaces, including value-added services such as free wifi, a new food offering, indoor and outdoor children’s areas, latest-generation vending machines, and a new concept in restrooms, provide a new image and enhanced user experience.
COMO is the latest brand developed by Areas. It is characterized by the versatility of its offering and makes a wide range of delicious possibilities available for the most demanding palates. From freshly made gourmet baguettes on artisan bread to exquisite regional dishes. Health-conscious visitors can also enjoy a carefully chosen selection of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices, and various different salads.
One highlight in the La Selva travel plaza is the grand opening of the new brand COMO, successfully established in the La Jonquera travel plaza.
