BaxterStorey has scooped a second foodservice contract with British Airways (BA) from Restaurant Associates.
The win comes hot on the heels of a £20m deal awarded in January to look after the airline's lounges, which was also previously managed by Compass Group's executive dining brand.
The new five-year deal, which industry experts estimate to be worth in the region of £25m, will see BaxterStorey deliver dining and hospitality services to thousands of BA employees at 12 sites across Heathrow, Manchester and Newcastle.
Steve Probert, property operations manager at British Airways, said: "The vision of the Facilities Management 2013 programme was to provide ‘best in class' services across all FM operations, in a cost effective manner that delivers excellence to our internal and external customers.
"The decision to appoint BaxterStorey to provide colleague catering supports this vision and provides a flexible service provision and improved business processes. BaxterStorey clearly demonstrated how they will provide the value-add we need."
Mack Allan, BaxterStorey's regional director, commented: "To be awarded a second contract of this prestige is fantastic news for BaxterStorey.
"Our key focus will be to enhance the hospitality experience for British Airways staff and concentrate on what we do best, which is to deliver excellence in food service by providing fresh, locally sourced, seasonal food."
Noel Mahony, chief executive at BaxterStorey, added: "Our specialist team have worked extremely hard and have placed a lot of energy into securing this deal, so we are absolutely delighted that British Airways has selected us yet again to be its catering partner."
