Schiphol Airport Extends Autogrill Partnership

Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport has extended its partnership with Autogrill subsidiary HMSHost from 2028 to 2036 in a deal that is expected to generate €1.8 billion.

Active at the airport since 1995, HMSHost is the main supplier of catering and food services within the Dutch aviation hub which it describes as a "showcase of innovation in offering and services for travellers". The company operates or manages 79 food and beverages outlets and points of sale.


HMSHost will continue to support the airport’s sustainability goals and explore digital innovation, leveraging both organisations' strengths to deliver best value for travellers.


Having worked together on the development of the new F&B strategy for restaurants and cafés at the airport, the extension includes the allocation of flexible concept sites that are designed to be responsive to emerging trends. The extension of the partnership includes the F&B components of the airport’s future "A Pier", and redevelopment of Lounge 1, ultimately contributing to the realisation of the vision to achieve 100 per cent sustainability.


Highlights of the partnership include expanding food waste prevention initiative, Soup & Bakery by De Verspillingsfabriek, which won ABN AMRO Best Newcomer Retail Award in 2019 as well as Schiphol Aiport’s own Innovation Award.


Schiphol has also piloted the Autogrill subsidiary's health-related food, fresh juice and salad bowl concept, VIT, which was named as the 2019 FAB regional winner (Europe) in the "Airport Health-Centred or Vegan Offer of the Year" category.


The traveller-friendly layout of the Lounge 1 Food Court at the airport has also previously been awarded a "Best Food & Beverage Partnership Award" at the TWFA Frontier Awards in Cannes 2018, with HMSHost's commitment to operating sustainably at the airport also recognised at the 9th Annual Airports Going Green Conference in 2016.
