No, they have a private hanger near the airport. It’s a great place to hang out for a little bit before your flight. Enjoy!

There is some fresh fruit available, however if you ask them for specific foods they will usually be able to accommodate. Always worth a quick email upfront before your trip if there is anything specific you may require
