SPAIN. SSP Group has secured an eight-year contract worth around €203 million to open seven food and beverage units at Alicante-Elche Airport.

In a first for the company, SSP will partner with fast-growing independent craft brewery BrewDog to launch a bar in the departures area in June. The company opened its first bar in Aberdeen in 2010 and now operates more than 80 bars globally, including two Outpost BrewPubs where they brew beer on site.

UK independent craft brewery BrewDog will open a bar in the airport departures area in June, in a first for SSP.

SSP will also launch a mix of international brands and local concepts both airside and landside under the new deal.

Burger King was the first brand to open with three units opened in March. SSP will also debut its first Häagen-Dazs ice cream shop in Spain and open a new restaurant from North American chain, Tim Hortons, in June. A new outlet from Spanish charcuterie house Enrique Tomas will follow in November.

SSP Spain Managing Director Blanca Ripoll said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this new contract at Alicante-Elche, which reaffirms our position as a leading operator in the travel market in Spain. We look forward to opening with these new on-trend and exciting brands, which will provide a wide choice of food and drink options to our valued customers.”
