Topaz, Ireland’s largest convenience and fuel retailer has opened its new state of the art service station at Dublin Airport.
The Company says the €3m redevelopment of the site has transformed it into one of the most modern and best equipped in the country. Twenty people are employed full-time at the 24/7 station.
John Williamson, Chief Executive of Topaz said the company wanted to give customers, especially visitors to Ireland, a friendly, professional and positive retail experience.
“About twenty million people travel through Dublin Airport every year – that’s around 55,000 a day - and not surprisingly, our service station is one of the busiest in the country. We are also delighted to have it completed in time for the extremely busy Christmas/New Year period.
Topaz is in expansion mode and the redevelopment here at Dublin Airport is a key part of that. Earlier this year we announced details of two new motorway sites on the M8 and M9. We are constantly looking at sites with good potential near motorways and that will continue into 2014,” Mr Williamson said.
The new site features live Departure/Arrival information which will be very useful for travellers. It also has a cafe, hot food deli, Wi-Fi internet access, EV charger, car wash and a pay at pump facility.
Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) Chief Executive, Kevin Toland said the new development was excellent news; not just for air travellers but for everyone who works at Dublin Airport.
“We have been working closely with Topaz to enhance services for motorists and this wonderful new facility will do just that. The next two weeks are among our busiest with 660,000 passengers using the airport and it’s great that they will now be able to avail of this new service station.
In addition to serving the needs of the the travelling public, this excellent new facility will also benefit the 18,000 people who work at Dublin Airport, including DAA employees, airline staff, ground handlers, maintenance staff, car hire company employees, hotel staff, and taxi drivers,” Mr Toland added.
