Aena awards the service to three operators, who will manage the new space until 2027
Aena has renewed the offer of restoration of Alicante-Elche Airport, which will have 18 locations in a of more than 5,600 m2 area. In this way, the airport will have a wide and varied catering area, with a high level of quality and that adapts to the tastes and preferences of the passengers, which includes a terrace with views of the runway and takeoffs and landings and a reading area.
The allocation of the new spaces, which covers the period 2019-2027, corresponds to the operators of restoration Areas, which will manage eight locations; Select Service Partner (SSP) with seven points of sale; the EatOut Group (Pansfood) with two stores and Airfoods with one store.
The presence of international brands oriented to the type of airport passenger stands out, such as the well-known international coffee shops Starbucks, Costa Coffee and Lavazza, together with the first establishment in Spanish airports of the Canadian Tim Hortons. In addition, the Alicante terminal will have an Italian restaurant in La Tagliatella; three local Burger King; the Subway international snack bar; the Häagen Dazs ice cream parlor and Brewdog and Carlsberg breweries, the latter with a terrace overlooking the track and airplanes.
The national product will also be present, with a gourmet bar from the Enrique Tomás Experience brand with ham as the main product; a cafeteria of the Spanish firm Santa Gloria and a local Deli & Cia.
The new trends come hand in hand with a local “food market” environment with five culinary proposals: Wok Street (Asian food), O Mamma Mia (Italian food), Café Pans (coffee shop), Ribs (grilled meat) and Café Central (healthy food). To this last local, we must add two firms with a healthy offer: the healthy food brand Exki and the British Eat with their “Good Mood Food”.
This “mix” of brands allows serving the different segments of passengers based on their nationality, age, tastes and preferences, as well as promoting competition, and with it, the improvement of quality, service and price.
Aena has achieved a variety of restaurant operators and the presence of national and international brands, which provide an additional guarantee of quality, variety of products, type of cuisine and service.
