Strengthening a link

Emirates reports that one of its most notable route success stories has been its daily flight between Dubai and Glasgow.

So much so, that on June 1, the carrier launched a second daily flight and the event was kicked off with a party at the airport’s Skylounge. Visitors had the chance to taste offerings from the airline’s premium class menu with the help of caterer Alpha Flight. Among the VIPs on hand were Darren Bott, Emirates’ Regional Catering Manager and Alphas Development Chef, Des O’Connor. During the event, visitors had the chance to feast on first and business class service with a tasty menu of offerings.

Others in attendance were city leaders from Glasgow, airport management and Laurie Berryman, Emirates’ Vice President UK.

Alpha itself is on the verge of entering a new phase in the United Kingdom. With its partnership with LSG Sky Chefs Europe Holdings, an incorporated venture called Alpha LSG Ltd. will become effective October 1. A team of Ken Adamson, Managing Director of Alpha Flight UK and Axel Bilstein, a senior executive with LSG Sky Chefs will be in charge of the operation.  The 50/50 venture was formally announced in March of this year. Alpha alone will continue to cater British Airways at its dedicated operations in Ireland and at London Gatwick.

Alpha LSG Ltd. estimates combined revenue of £300 million with the joint venture which will be carried out at 16 airports across the UK
