Friday, January 24, 2003

Milan, 24 January 2003 - Autogrill, the Italian-based multinational and leading provider worldwide of restaurant services for people on the move, has been awarded the concession for lot 1, at Milan’s Linate Airport.
Last December, the SEA invited tenders for management of all food & beverage services at Linate, dividing operations into two lots and specifying that a single operator could not be awarded both concessions.
The lot won by Autogrill consists of four sales outlets: a bar-pizzeria in the arrivals area which is already operated by the company, a kiosk bar in the check-in area, a large bar in the departures lounge and a self-service restaurant. Autogrill will take over management of the kiosk and restaurant in March 2003, and of the departures bar in January 2004. The five-year contract is expected to generate aggregate revenues of more than 30 million euro.
