For the first time in the Middle East, travelers departing from Kuwait International Airport’s Terminal 1 can now order coffee and have it brought directly to them at their departure gate. The new ground-breaking service is provided by COFE App, the Kuwait-based coffee-centric marketplace app, and Costa Coffee, the world’s favorite coffee house.
Launched just in time for the busy holiday travel season, the ‘COFE Pick Up at Gate’ service aims to bring ease and comfort to the lives of vacation-goers. The new service is exclusive to COFE App users starting from today.
Three easy steps for travelers to get their “COFE Pick Up at Gate”
- Through COFE App, the traveler selects their favorite drinks or food items from Costa Coffee’s airport branch
- The traveler then chooses the “Delivery at the Gate” option, enters their gate number, and pays through the app.
- Coffee is delivered to the traveler at the designated gate.
COFE App Founder and CEO Ali Al Ebrahim said: “We are always seeking new ways to shorten the distance between coffee lovers and their coffee. This is exactly what the ‘COFE Pick Up at Gate’ option does. We are very pleased to be launching this new delivery option with our partner Costa Coffee.”
Costa Coffee General Manager Tarek Trad said: “Our partnership with COFE App marks the launch of an exciting new service that will enable us to complement our customers’ travel experience. We are also proud of the quality of services offered by COFE App and its ambitions; a Kuwait-based startup that managed to create a digital marketplace that provides the opportunity for coffee shops to be closer to their customers.”
COFE App enables customers to order and pay for their coffee, and choose from multiple delivery options, including fast delivery to their office or home, counter pick-up, and in-car delivery service. The entire selection and purchasing process takes place in the app, which offers comprehensive menus and drink customization options (for example: sugar preference, milk type preference, and other add-ons). COFE App was Beta launched in February 2018 in Kuwait and will soon be available in other countries.
