Areas is awarded 3 new outlets at Faro Airport, Portugal

Areas, the global concession catering brand of French Elior Group, has earned the concession of three new outlets at Faro Airport, the third largest Portuguese airport with 7 million passengers annually. This concession, valid for 5 years, includes three innovative proposals adapted to this airport’s international passengers. With this concession contract, Areas strengthens its position as the leading operator in this airport and reinforces its presence in Portugal, where it also recently touched down at Funchal Airport (Madeira) after its success in Lisbon and Porto.
Areas will set up a Carlsberg Sports Bar, a Delta Café Central coffee shop, both in arrivals on the ground floor, as well as a Rossopomodoro restaurant in the departures area.
“We are very proud of our consolidation in the Portuguese market. In the last year, we have conquered two new airports, Funchal and Faro, thanks to the quality of our proposals, which combines franchised brands with established co-branded outlets, bringing together our know-how and expertise with those of our renowned suppliers. This way we manage to offer the highest quality product with the number one brands in Portugal,” noted Oscar Vela, CEO of Areas in Spain, Portugal and Latin America. “Additionally, we are especially satisfied with the implementation of our first Rossopomodoro outlet, a widely renowned brand whose product quality and attraction for customers perfectly fits our philosophy,” he added.
The project is part of the airport remodeling and modernization plan that ANA Airports started at the end of 2015 and will finish in 2017. A Portfolio store is also set to open in Faro Airport during that year. This outlet for the brand, already present in the Lisbon, Oporto and Funchal airports, will be warmly welcomed as the fourth store in the country and will offer a great selection of typical Portuguese products across its 300 m2 space.
