The McDonald’s fryers are sizzling for fliers once again at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The fast-food outlet resumed business Thursday, ending a nearly two-year absence after two McDonald’s restaurants were shut down at Concourse G when Delta Air Lines decided not to renew the company’s lease.

At the time, Delta officials said McDonald’s simply didn’t fit the new vision for Concourse G, which the airline controls.

The Metropolitan Airports Commission has said that the absence of McDonald’s was one of travelers’ top complaints.

The 1,800-square-foot McDonald’s is near the entrance to Concourse D. It is open 24 hours a day and will employ about 60 people. It includes a seating area with electrical outlets for travelers’ mobile technology devices.

As part of the grand opening, specials will be promoted on Twitter at @McD_Minnesota and @mspairport.
