SSP Secures Oslo Contract

SSP has secured a major new deal to run more than 30 food and beverage outlets at Oslo Airport.  The five-year deal means the company will remain the sole ‘F&B’ (food and beverage) operator airside and on the landside departure level.  The new and refurbished units – in which SPP will invest approximately £8 million – are scheduled to open between November 2011 and March 2012.

The Seafood Bar will remain at Oslo Airport in the new SSP deal (SSP)

New brands to join the airport are yet to be announced.  Those remaining include Upper Crust, Salmon House Seafood Bar, O’Learys, Monolitten and Sinnataggen.  These bars and restaurants will be complemented by SSP’s successful convenience store brand, Point, which was created to meet the specific needs of the travelling consumer.  A number of these outlets will be refurbished as part of the redevelopment of the terminal.
According to Espen Ettre, director of business development and real estate at Oslo Airport: “SSP offered an outstanding range of bars, cafes and restaurants that are ideally suited to our passengers here at Oslo.  They really understand the travelling consumer, and how to operate within the travel environment.  The local management team is a strong one, and we’re confident that SSP Norway will continue to meet the high expectations of our customers.”
