Areas, the global concession catering brand of Elior Group, has been awarded seven new points of sale for eight years at Malaga airport, the fourth airport in Spain in terms of traffic with 18.6 million passengers each year. These new points of sale add to the two that Areas already managed in Malaga, where it has been present since 2009.

The new food and beverage offering from Areas includes three Carte d’Or, specializing in high-quality craft ice cream, two MasQMenos, with a focus on beer, ham and tapas, the haute Japanese cuisine of premium sushi bar Kirei, guided by chef Ricardo Sanz, and Bibo Flamenco Bar&Tapas, the airport's new culinary reference, pure innovation and quality ingredients by world-renowned Andalusian chef Dani García. Airport guests will immediately recognize the trademark elements of his restaurants and will be able to enjoy the full experience.

For Oscar Vela, CEO of Areas worldwide, “the Areas team couldn't be happier to have been awarded this contract. We presented a balanced proposal that included nationally and internationally famous brands like MasQMenos and Carte d’Or, and a consolidated brand like Kirei, a prestigious concept we already successfully operate at the Madrid and Ibiza airports. We are very proud of our new collaboration with Dani García, a chef of international standing who will delight travelers stopping in Malaga. We want this airport to be a culinary reference where passengers leave with memories of tasty food.
