Avolta expands operations at Copenhagen, secures new contract

By GTR Magazine Staff

Avolta AG has secured a new six-year contract to expand its operations at Copenhagen Airport with the opening of a new store. Avolta is committed to providing travelers with a genuine sense of place, exemplified by the recent launch of the local pizza favorite, Neighbourhood, offering crispy sourdough pizzas and a variety of craft beers from local favorite “To Øl”, enhancing the food and beverage offerings at the airport. This move not only supports Avolta’s partnership with Copenhagen Airport but also underscores its dedication to highlighting distinctive local products that appeal to both locals and tourists.

Neighbourhood features a contemporary take on traditional Italian pizzas, using sourdough for a lighter, crispier base. The pizzas boast globally-inspired toppings that vary seasonally, including an array of greens, vegetables, cheeses, seafood, and meats, offering a new take on classic flavors. Customers can also enjoy 15 different draft beers from To Øl, along with signature cocktails. To Øl is celebrated for its diverse range of beers, from light and floral to hoppy and robust, catering to a wide range of preferences.

Walter Seib, CEO of Avolta for Northern, Central, and Eastern Europe, commented, “It is a privilege to play a part in Copenhagen Airport’s F&B development and to support its vision to introduce local heroes to the airport. We work with brands all over the world, from global household names through to our own bespoke concepts. What gets us really excited is translating local brands into high traffic heroes, to deliver a strong sense of place to our guests as they travel abroad or return home. Neighbourhood, Pizza and Craft Beer differentiates itself from typical pizza concepts with a high-quality offering in a casual and intimate atmosphere with views over the terminal.”

Casper Frimann, Food & Beverage Business Partner at Copenhagen Airport, said, “Neighbourhood is a slice of Copenhagen and a beloved spot in the city. This is exactly the vibe and experience we want to share with the travelers in Copenhagen Airport. The combination of creative and flavorful pizzas, an impressive selection of drinks and great atmosphere has universal appeal."

Martin Beck Duedahl, Founder of Neighbourhood, Pizza & Craft Beer, stated, “Neighbourhood is all about Nordic cosiness, mixed with a different take on pizzas and paired with awesome drinks. We offer adventurers, travelers, colleagues, and good folk arriving home a cosy spot to enjoy a definitely NOT Italian pizza with a Nordic twist and a local Danish brew. Raised above the hustle of the main airport, we are here to send you off refreshed or welcome you back home safe."

This new Neighbourhood outlet is the fifth dining venue Avolta has established at Copenhagen Airport, joining others such as Burger King and Copenhagen Coffee Lab in Terminal 2, and Pier B and SMAG in Terminal 3.
