Gate Gourmet selects partner for Norwegian’s Duty Free Business

Gate Gourmet has chosen Inflight Service Europe AB (IFS) as its partner for all duty free-related sales aboard Norwegian Air Shuttle, which recently renewed and expanded its contract with Gate Gourmet to provide systemwide onboard catering and provisioning.

In addition to the duty free pre-pack business that IFS currently has on charter flights of Norwegian’s recently acquired subsidiary, FlyNordic, Gate Gourmet will also use IFS’ expertise to further develop the duty free impulse sales across the Norwegian system. The companies also will seek opportunities for further development of the pre-pack business into new segments of the Norwegian network.

“Gate Gourmet and IFS already have experience working together on a number of airlines within Scandinavia, and it has proven to be the best partner for the duty free sales on board Norwegian’s flights,” said Philippe Op de Beeck, Senior Vice President of gategroup and President of Gate Gourmet’s Central Europe, Middle East and Africa region.

“We are delighted to expand our relationship with Gate Gourmet and we look forward to the mutual opportunities serving the customers of Norwegian, one of the fastest growing low-fare airlines in Europe,” said IFS Chief Executive Peter Candell.
