Milan, 09 March 2006 - Autogrill (Milan: AGL IM) strengthens its presence in the Italian airport channel by securing two new concession contracts, one in Catania’s new Fontanarossa Airport and the other in Florence’s Amerigo Vespucci Airport. Overall sales generated by the two 5-year contracts are expected to be around €50m. The two new operations bring the number of Autogrill’s Italian airports to 10, in addition to another 11 elsewhere in Europe. Further, thanks to the acquisition of Florence and Catania only a few months after Bergamo and Brescia, the Company is now present in 7 of the top 10 Italian airports in terms of passenger traffic.

Autogrill was awarded the bigger of two lots put out to tender by SAC (Società Aeroporto Catania S.p.A.) for the management of all the f&b services and some of the retail areas in their new airport set to open in 2006.
