HMSHost International secures five-year F&B extension at Bali Airport

By Laura Shirk

HMSHost International, global market leader in the food and hospitality industry, is expanding its operations in Indonesia with the addition of five new stores at one of the country’s busiest airports, I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS). The five new stores will see HMSHost bringing new and fresh concepts to the airport, incorporating a mix of brands to fulfil passenger’s demographic.

The winning proposal is set for five years, with the first store expected to open as soon as passenger recovery takes place. This tender will extend the company’s position as the airport’s major F&B operator.

The winning package includes locally renowned café, Sisterfields, and HMSHost’s own global brands, Espresso Bar and FRESH. While the pandemic has affected Bali’s tourism in the recent months, this new contract extension strengthens HMSHost’s position as a global leader and reinforces the company’s commitment to and support of airport authorities Angkasa Pura I.

“HMSHost is excited to continue its Bali journey for another five years. Since our entry in 2013, we have established ourselves as the main F&B operator across the International Terminal and have enjoyed a strong collaboration with AP1 along the way.

“We look forward to developing these exciting new concepts and beginning a journey with the Sisterfields brand, an iconic ‘must visit’ location in downtown Seminyak. HMSHost is proud to be bringing memorable F&B experiences to the Bali international passengers,” says David Mackay, Regional Director, HMSHost Asia Pacific.

"We are delighted to welcome back HMSHost International as our F&B business partner at Bali I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport, and have awarded them the F&B commercial tender for the next five years.

“We sincerely appreciate HMSHost International’s steps to maintain its interest to operate at I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport amid the lagging demand of passenger traffic due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, we believe international passenger traffic will immediately re-bound once international border is fully re-opened and international flights re-start,” adds Faik Fahmi, President Director of Angkasa Pura I, Bali's I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport operator company.
