European Airport Catering: Market Insight Report 2014

DUBLIN, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tmfd2r/european_airport) has announced the addition of the "European Airport Catering: Market Insight Report 2014" report to their offering.

The airport catering industry, consisting of restaurants, bars and cafes operated within airport terminals, has some attractive characteristics. Captive customers, who are skewed towards higher income groups, spend significant time in airport buildings, unable to eat elsewhere. Hence prices are generally high and sales per square metre can be up to four times normal restaurant levels.

However, airports represent a demanding environment in which to operate with challenges including security and space restrictions, the need to run dispersed international operations on a 24/7 basis, significant daily and seasonal variations in customer volumes and time-pressured customers.

The challenge for catering operators is to deliver ongoing improvements in performance so that they can earn returns in excess of what they need to pay to their two strategic suppliers: the owners of their high-footfall sites and high-performing brands.

This new study finds that, although there are 600 airports in Europe with more than 15,000 passengers per year, the largest airports are critical to the sector. The top 15 account for around 40% of total passenger volumes and the catering revenues of a single large hub airport can be in excess of 100m.

Key market trends discussed in the report include the demand from passengers for healthier food, the growth of low-cost airlines - which has led to fewer passengers receiving a free in-flight meal, increasing commercialisation of airports with airport operators looking to earn more money from sources such as catering and retail, the increasing importance of strongly-branded catering offers capable of driving higher sales and the impact of airport changes such as enhanced security operations and on-line check-in on the time available for passengers to eat.

The report concludes that the market is now well over 2bn in size, having grown rapidly in recent years. It has been driven by both increases in the number of passengers using European airports, which bounced back strongly since the post-credit crunch dip in 2009 and spend per passenger trends. The largest markets are in northern Europe with the UK and, relative to population, the Nordic countries being particularly prominent.

The market is supplied by a combination of specialist concessioners with portfolios of in-house and licensed brands, branded food service groups and other catering providers. The main concession operators are SSP, Autogrill and Elior. While many leading foodservice brands, such as Burger King, Starbucks Pizza Hut and Quick, license their brands to the concession operators, others, such as McDonalds, Subway, JD Wetherspoon and Pret a Manger generally operate outlets directly rather than via concessions groups.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
