The company said: “Once again [as with previous retail awards], this event is a major milestone in Angkasa Pura I’s journey of transformation and its goal to enhance the airport's non-aeronautical revenue contribution.”

Angkasa Pura I said that its main priority is to upgrade customer service. "We will not only deliver the basic services of an airport but also create a unique and enjoyable travel experience inside the terminal, especially in the commercial area where most passengers spend their time," it said.

"Excellent services inside this commercial area can only be delivered through strong partnerships with world-class operators that have a proven track record."

The signing ceremony was held at Kartika Hotel Hotel, Bali. It was attended by GVK President Project Development, Karthi Gajendran; General Manager of Ngurah Rai Commercial SBU, Kenneth Guldbjerg; Co-General Manager Ramdan Pradarma; plus other senior representatives from Angkasa Pura I and the winning bidders.

Angkasa Pura I said: “This agreement not only reflects all the companies’ enthusiasm to cooperate, but will also bring a new quality level in the history of Indonesian airport retail.”
