- Under an agreement with ICTur, the Company expects to generate total revenues of around 110 million Euros over the 10-year contract
MILAN, 9-6-2015 — /EuropaWire/ — Through its HMSHost International division, Autogrill has entered an agreement with ICTur¹ to operate 8 points of sale at Antalya Airport in Turkey. The new business is expected to generate total revenues of around €110m over the contract’s 10-year term (2015-2025).
Thanks to the partnership with the Turkish company, which manages the entire food & beverage offering at the airport, Autogrill is expanding its operations in the country, as of now concentrated at Istanbul’s Sabina Gökçen International Airport, where the Group operates 16 points of sale.
The facilities cover over 600 square meters and offer a mix of international and house brands covering the requirements of all travellers with four Starbucks, the world’s best known café label (opening for the first time in this Turkish airport), ”take away on the go” concept Kiosko, two Puro Gusto venues, the contemporary café concept for quality breaks (premium coffee products as well as selected culinary specialities), and Kebab & Beer Factory, developed to satisfy the needs of travellers keen on discovering local flavours.
“The agreement entered with ICTur is a new step forward for Autogrill’s strategy of expansion in Turkey, where airport traffic is growing fast, thanks in part to major infrastructure investments undertaken by the Turkish Government in the last few years,” said HMSHost International CEO Walter Seib. “At Antalya Airport, one of the most important in the region, we will be introducing some of our most innovative concepts to make its food & beverage offering international.”
With over 28 million passengers in 2014, of whom around 80% international² , Antalya is the country’s 2nd biggest airport after Istanbul Ataturk and the 14th in Europe by passenger traffic. It lies 13 km from Antalya, the main holiday destination on the country’s Mediterranean coast. The high quality of its services was certified in 2011 by Airports Council International (ACI), which ranked it as “Best Airport” in Europe in the 10-25 million travellers category.
