SSP lands in the West Indies
SSP Group has secured its first contract at an airport in the West Indies with Société Aéroport Martinique Aimé Césaire. As part of a major redevelopment project, the airport’s food and beverage space will be expanded by over one-third, with the number of units increasing from three to eight.
SSP will operate all of the new outlets, five of which will be landside and three airside. The new offer will include a tailor-made blend of local casual food outlets. There will also be a selection of international brands, including the first Starbucks in the West Indies, which is due to open in July 2023.
Gérard d'Onofrio, managing director of SSP France, Belgium and Luxembourg, said: “As a popular tourist destination with over 2m passengers passing through its gates in 2019 and ambitious plans for expansion, Aéroport Martinique Aimé Césaire faces a bright future. We’re delighted to have a presence at this new location and in particular to be bringing the first Starbucks to the island.”
The renovation project is due to start in October this year and is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
