Auckland Airport Joint Venture with HMSHost

Auckland Airport today announced that the HSMC-AIAL Limited joint venture arrangement with HMSHost is to be restructured to form a new standard concession arrangement for some of the food and beverage services operated by HMSHost at the Auckland Airport International Terminal. Auckland Airport general manager retail & commercial, Adrian Littlewood, said, “Auckland Airport has been part of a very successful joint venture to provide food and beverage services for over 20 years. The decision to put in place a standard agreement is consistent with our strategy to work proactively with all our retail and food & beverage partners to help them provide an outstanding service to international passengers.” “By entering into a traditional concession arrangement with HMSHost, we can focus on ensuring an outstanding passenger experience across the entire airport, and we can support HMSHost in its ambitions to provide a high quality food and beverage experience that meets many market needs, from mass market to high-end, with a focus, where possible, on quality New Zealand brands.” For international passengers there will be no immediate changes, however there will be an exciting new range of food and beverage offerings coming over the next few months. The new concession arrangement with HMSHost begins in mid August.
