Gategroup subsidiary, Gate Gourmet, has expanded its operations in Asia with the introduction of airline catering services facility on the holiday island of Bali in Indonesia, which is intended as a springboard for establishing further in-flight services across the area.
Gate Gourmet has entered into a long-term partnership at Bali Denpasar International Airport with Angkasa Pura Hotels (APH), the subsidiary of Angkasa Pura Airport (AP1) that operates and manages 13 domestic and international airports in Indonesia. APH owns and operates airport hotels, lounges and bakeries, and provides airport-related and inflight catering services to airlines, specializing in halal food.
Effective immediately, the collaboration provides Gate Gourmet with full management and operational autonomy of an existing APH operation at Denpasar International Airport, Bali, where Gate Gourmet will introduce its own best practices and technology in order to offer services to international airlines operating to and from the island.
“This partnership will leverage Gategroup’s expertise, processes, know-how and technology to further develop our operations in the region’s largest economy,” stated Gategroup CEO, Xavier Rossinyol.
