The new business will be operated by SSP Malaysia.

Three of the six new lounges will be located at KLIA1, with SSP taking over operations of the International Airside Loyalty Lounge and two First and Business Lounges. At KLIA2, SSP will run the International Airside Loyalty Lounge in Gate L and the International Airside Loyalty Lounge in the satellite building. The portfolio expansion is completed with the addition of the Domestic Airside Loyalty Lounge at KCH.

The new business will be operated by SSP Malaysia, a joint venture between SSP Group and Travel Food Services (TFS), which also partners with SSP in India where it operates 20 lounges in major travel hubs throughout India, including the award winning GVK lounge in Mumbai.

SSP’s latest lounge offering will be enhanced further with a new range of quality local and international food and beverage offerings.

CEO of SSP Asia Pacific, Mark Angela, said:

“This business win marks the beginning of an exciting expansion programme in Malaysia. Our detailed knowledge of this market and strong track record as operators, plus a phased investment plan aligned to the return of travellers mean that our lounge offerings will be perfectly aligned to the needs of our guests in each of these locations. We’re looking forward to working with MAHB on these exciting plans to provide a quality airport experience for travellers, while also increasing our presence in this important market.”
