With the agreement HMSHost will continue to operate two of the world’s leading food and beverage brands at Copenhagen Airport. The Burger King at Copenhagen Airport is situated in Terminal 3 before security and the two Starbucks units are located in Terminal 3 (arrivals) and in Terminal 2 (airside). All three stores are among the two brands’ best performing units in Europe. In addition to these outlets, HMSHost operates four airside units at Copenhagen Airport: Starbucks and The Bar in Terminal 3; and two Grab&Fly outlets at Concourses A and B.
Carsten Nørland, VP Sales and Marketing at Copenhagen Airport, says: “We are delighted that we will continue our partnership with HMSHost on two such strong international brands, and I’m convinced that our passengers will feel the same. Starbucks is widely known for its high level of service and has always been an airport favorite. The addition of Danish design at Burger King builds on our characteristic Danish airport ambience and is fully in line with our strategy of offering extraordinary travel experiences.”
Walter Seib, CEO HMSHost International, comments: “Copenhagen Airport is regarded as one of the world’s leading commercial airports, serving 24.1 million passengers in 2013. Partnering with Copenhagen Airport feels like a natural fit, combining its track record of excellent customer service and passenger care with our mission to enhance airport visitors’ experience by ‘Making the Traveller’s Day Better’. As industry pioneers we know how to live the world’s leading brands like no other. We are looking forward to our continued partnership.”
