Market Share of Europe Inflight Catering Industry
The inflight catering market in Europe is moderately consolidated, and a few major players, such as Gategroup, KLM catering services, the Emirates Group, DO & CO Aktiengesellschaft, and Newrest Group Services SAS, primarily dominate it. These companies increased their market presence in the past through the acquisition of local restaurants and other smaller catering companies. The acquisition of LSG's European operations by Gategroup would result in Gategroup accounting for a major share of the European inflight catering market in the coming years.
In addition to this, catering companies are introducing new technologies to reduce overall operational costs and increase their operational efficiencies. For instance, KLM Catering Services (KCS) is more focused on technological integration to fight the crisis. The introduction of new cost-cutting measures, as well as partnerships with new airlines, is anticipated to help the companies increase their geographic presence in the region in the coming years.
