Alpha LSG has been awarded a five year extension to its contract to provide catering and logistics services to Jet2.com’s entire UK network including new routes out of Birmingham and London-Stansted that are being launched from the end of March.
The enhanced contract which runs through to 2021 reflects the excellent long-standing relationship between Alpha LSG and Jet2.com since the award-winning airline commenced its UK operations back in 2003 from its main hub at Leeds-Bradford.
Since then the friendly low fares carrier, which is recognised as the UK’s fourth largest scheduled operator, has extended its services at the regional airports of Belfast, Edinburgh, East Midlands, Glasgow, Manchester and Newcastle, now adding Birmingham and London-Stansted to its portfolio.
Alex Forbes (pictured right), Chief Executive Officer of Alpha LSG, says: “We have been the caterer of choice for Jet2.com since the airline’s inception 14 years ago, working closely with their team to support the airline’s rapid growth through our renowned expertise and our ability to meet all of their requirements at all of their bases across the UK.
“This enhanced contract with Jet2.com reflects the superb relationship that has developed over the years and recognises the efforts of the entire team at Alpha LSG to provide the very best catering and logistical services to the airline. Indeed in 2016 we achieved a remarkable on-time performance score of 99.83% across Jet2’s bases, underpinning our reputation for reliability and consistency.”
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, says: “At Jet2.com everything is about delivering the very best for our customers, which is shy we are a multiple award-winning airline that is growing all the time. Our relationship with Alpha LSG has made a significant contribution towards that success and this extension means we can continue providing an excellent on-board service for our customers.”
Alpha LSG is responsible for procurement, warehousing and packing of Jet2.com’s retail products into bar sets and Onboard service products which are packaged into kits for passengers. Hot meals are supplied to the airline’s customers including entrees from Alpha LSG’s frozen food production facility along with full logistical support for on- and off-loading aircraft, equipment cleaning and storage.
