Large Number of Guests at Meeting on Opportunities at Keflavik International Airport
There was great attendance at Isavia´s open meeting to introduce the opportunity to operate two restaurants in the Keflavik Airport terminal. The meeting was held in Harpa in downtown Reykjavík on Wednesday March 30th.
Tender documents for the two restaurants have been published on the Isavia tender website. The tender is also advertised in the European Economic Area. Information on the restaurant opportunities can be found on our tender website. Both restaurants are being offered together on a five-year contract.
At the promotional meeting, Guðmundur Daði Rúnarsson, Isavia´s Chief Commercial and Airport Development Officer, presented the airport´s vision for the future. He went over all the construction work that had started in the process of expanding Keflavik Airport and what is on the planning horizon regarding further expansion. The new customer experience, retail and restaurant area under construction will add more than 20 thousand square meters to the current terminal. In addition, the Keflavik Airport terminal will be twice its current size in six years‘ time in line with current construction plans and timeline.
Gunnhildur Erla Vilbergsdóttir, Isavia´s Commercial Manager, went over the opportunities available in this latest tender process and also the opportunities that will be available for tender in the coming months. Contracts with some of Keflavik Airport´s current operators will run their course at the end of 2022 and in some cases the areas for those restaurants will have to make way for construction work and changes to the terminal building.
According to Icelandic law, Isavia will offer various opportunities up for tender in the coming months and years when contracts are expiring. This includes an eyewear store, cafés and foreign exchange services to name a few.
“The future is bright at Keflavik Airport and the opportunities on offer in the coming months and years are varied and exciting,” says Guðmundur Daði Rúnarsson.
