Sweetbrew lands at Launceston Airport

As domestic flying picks up momentum Launceston Airport is getting ready to welcome specialty coffee retailer and local favourite, Sweetbrew.

The partnership between Sweetbrew and Launceston Airport aims to support local business and creates a sense of place reflecting the best of Tasmania’s coffee culture.

Sweetbrew joins four retailers at the airport including The Boag’s Upper Deck, Bar and Restaurant, Hudsons Coffee, Wilderness Café and our Tasmanian focused news and gifts outlet, The Launceston Store.

Over the years, the city's coffee industry has boomed as customer tastes evolved providing a demand for quality local coffee.

Launceston Airport CEO Hans van Pelt said he looked forward to welcoming the iconic local business to the airport.

“We can’t wait to add a taste of the city to our airport – it’s a brand locals know and love and visitors will no doubt enjoy,” said Mr van Pelt.

“This year has thrown many challengers at the Launceston community and it’s great to see local businesses supporting each other as tourism gradually builds.

“We are pleased to see the resumption of domestic flying and with it brings new opportunities. We look forward to expanding our retailer portfolio by partnering with more local businesses in future.”

Sweetbrew Founder and Owner Archana Brammall said she looks forward to welcoming travellers with the specialty coffee.

“It’s great to see Launceston Airport supporting our local business and allowing us to be part of the traveller experience.”

“After 7 years of great community support we are indeed very excited to be expanding our business in this way and bringing Sweetbrew to Launceston Airport."

The Launceston Airport Sweetbrew cafe will be located in the departures area between gate lounges one and three and will commence trade in January.
