SSP to operate 6 lounges in Maylasia

By Wendy Morley

F&B operator SSP Group is expanding its airport lounge portfolio at two airports in Malaysia after signing a contract with Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB).

Under this agreement, SSP will assume operations of a total of six MAHB airport lounges at Kuching International Airport (KCH) and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) Terminal 1 (KLIA1) and Terminal 2 (KLIA2).

SSP will take over operations of the International Airside Loyalty Lounge and two First and Business Lounges at KLIA1.

At KLIA2, SSP will run the International Airside Loyalty Lounge in Gate L and the International Airside Loyalty Lounge in the satellite building.

At KCH, the company will run the Domestic Airside Loyalty Lounge.

SSP Malaysia, a joint venture between SSP Group and Travel Food Services (TFS), will operate these lounges. SSP Malaysia also partners with SSP in India, where it operates 20 lounges in major travel hubs throughout India.

In these lounges, SSP will offer a new range of quality local and international food and beverage offerings

Mark Angela, CEO of SSP Asia Pacific, said; “This business win marks the beginning of an exciting expansion programme in Malaysia. Our detailed knowledge of this market and strong track record as operators, plus a phased investment plan aligned to the return of travellers mean that our lounge offerings will be perfectly aligned to the needs of our guests in each of these locations. We’re looking forward to working with MAHB on these exciting plans to provide a quality airport experience for travellers, while also increasing our presence in this important market.”
