Milan, 15 June 2007 – Autogrill Group (Milan: AGL IM) has strengthened its presence in Copenhagen and Stockholm airports by winning a contract for four stores in the Danish hub and a new
outlet in the Swedish airport. In both cases the food&beverage concepts installed will be under major international brands. The two operations together are expected to produce accumulated
sales of around ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬50m.
These new contracts come just weeks after Autogrill secured a contract in Shannon Airport and further consolidate the Group’s presence in Northern Europe. There are now f&b and retail
locations managed by Autogrill in 51 airports in Europe.
Copenhagen International Airport
The four new f&b stores in Copenhagen International Airport – Starbucks, Heineken, Segafredo and N?bro Bryghus – are in addition to the three that the Group has been operating since 2006.
The new contract, which also involves rebuilding the locations, is expected to generate accumulated sales in excess of
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬36m over the seven-year concession. With around 21 million passengers moved in 2006 (up 4.5%
on 2005), Copenhagen International Airport has grown appreciably in recent years due to strong growth by low cost operators, in addition to its being the main hub for SAS Scandinavian Airlines,
the flag carrier for Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
Arlanda International Airport, Stockholm
The new contract brings to nine the number of Group stores in Arlanda International Airport, Stockholm, where it has operated since 2005 in terminals T2, T4, T5 and the SkyCity area. The new
outlet – a MAX, the country’s best known traditional hamburger brand – is in Terminal 4 and will open at the end of 2007. It is expected to produce accumulated sales in excess of
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬13m over the ten-year contract. Stockholm is one of Europe’s busiest airports, with over 17
million passengers moved every year by over 70 airlines linking around 170 destinations.
