AUTOGRILL VFS F&B Expands Footprint with Eight Openings at the New International Terminal, Cam Ranh Airport.

KHANH HOA PROVINCE (June 30th, 2018) -- Airport restaurateur Autogrill VFS F&B has delivered eight exciting food and beverage concepts to the newly opened International Terminal of Cam Ranh Airport in an ambitious expansion of its dining offer.

Autogrill VFS F&B Managing Director Simon Stansfield said: “We are delighted to be able to extend our gastronomic commitment at the impressive new International Terminal at Cam Ranh. This is a clear demonstration of our commitment to bring both the best global food to our airport locations and a continuation of our development strategy.”

“The story of Cam Ranh International departures is an impressive one having seen a ten-fold increase over the past 5 years and now servicing nearly 2 million annual departures. With this line-up of food and beverage outlets we look to create an even better experience for these passengers and have a highly motivated and well trained team ready to exceed all expectations.”

Mr. Stansfield continued: “We’re are providing our guests true variety with the very best of Vietnamese cuisine standing alongside International icons that deliver authentic tastes and flavors set in  modern and vibrant dining environments.”

The UK’s favourite coffee chain, Costa Coffee, has opened in two locations, one at the check-in area, and the other on the main concourse after customs. The Costa Coffee at check-in is joined by a Big Bowl, a Vietnamese pho based concept developed for airport food and beverage by Autogrill VFS F&B and now celebrating its 18th store opening.

“Whether it be part of your daily routine or your last taste of Vietnam, we want everyone to be able to enjoy an authentic pho experience whilst they are at Cam Ranh Airport. This opening will ensure all travelers get the opportunity to taste all of their Vietnamese favourites,” said Mr. Stansfield.

The airside line-up also includes the popular and successful Burger King hamburger chain as well as a Puro Gusto coffee outlet that delivers delectable espresso and the specialty flavors of Italy.

Continuing the International theme, we introduce a Crystal Jade Kitchen, one of the most prominent Cantonese restaurant chains in Asia and reflecting the airport’s strong Asian traffic as well as the popularity of this cuisine.

There will be something for everyone at the two Star Cafés conveniently located at the departure gates, Vietnamese coffee sits alongside a full variety of convenience based food and beverage options that can be enjoyed in store or taken on board your flight.

Autogrill VFS F&B now runs around 100 points of sale in airport food and beverage in Vietnam, including facilities at Tan Son Nhat, Noi Bai, Da Nang, Cam Ranh and Phu Quoc airports.

Cam Ranh Airport is the main airport serving the traveling demand to and from the south central coastal province of Khanh Hoa which includes the resort city of Nha Trang and Cam Ranh City whose bay has been named among the world’s seven best destinations for May by top travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler in April. The province is aiming to welcome about 6.5 million visitors, including 2.8 million foreign arrivals in 2018

Construction of the new two-storey VNĐ4 trillion (US$180 million) international passenger terminal was initiated in September 2016, aiming to easy the congestion created by the growing passenger traffic. Its opening reportedly boosts passenger capacity to 4 million per year up from 2.5 million travelers. The number of passengers is expected to hit eight million at the end of the third phase in 2030.

Inspired from the popular image of Salanganes’ nest in Khanh Hoa Province, the four-star terminal is not a simple building, but an immense, iconic and state-of-the-art building with fantastic looking. It features a total of 40 check-in counters arranged in two rows, each having 20 counters, ten aircraft bridges, six baggage carousels and four air bridges.

There are 16 airlines which currently operate regularly at Cam Ranh Airport, offering a wide range of international destinations of Hong Kong, China, Russia, South Korea, and Cambodia. The domestic destinations includes Ha Noi, Hai Phong, Vinh, Da Nang, and Ho Chi Minh City.
